Route 208 (New Bridge Road), Louisa Co.
|Reconstruction from Route 522 to Spotsylvania County line|
$18.9 million estimate
Lengths and Limits
3.62 miles; from Rt. 522 to the Spotsylvania Co. line
What Is Proposed?
Currently funded for preliminary engineering only, this project proposes to reconstruct a 3.62-mile stretch of Route 208 (New Bridge Road) between Route 522 (Zachary Taylor Highway) and the Spotsylvania County line. Estimated at $18.9 million, the project would rebuild the two-lane road to meet current design standards.
In September 2016, Louisa County submitted two SMART SCALE project applications that would make improvements along Route 208:
- A $14.1 million project to fully fund improvements from Route 522 to Lake Anna: application | scorecard
- A $7.9 million project to focus improvements on the eastern end of Route 208 between Route 652 (Kentucky Springs Road) and Lake Front Drive: application | scorecard
SMART SCALE scoring was released on Jan. 17, 2017, and neither project was recommended for funding (see page 18 of this presentation); however, a final decision by the Commonwealth Transportation Board will not be made until June 2017.
