Route 13 (Lankford Highway) Improvements at Stone Road

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is planning safety and operational improvements at the intersection of Route 13 (Lankford Highway) and Route 184 (Stone Road).

The current project is to improve safety and traffic operations by installing a traffic signal, signs, and lighting at the intersection. The project will also widen and lengthen the right and left-turn lanes on Route 13 south to Country Place. The improvements are estimated to be complete in summer 2021.

Traffic Impacts

Starting as early as Monday, Dec. 14, daily shoulder closures will be in place on Route 13. As the project progresses, motorists may encounter weekday lane closures primarily during daytime hours, with potential overnight and weekend work as needed on a case-by-case basis. Throughout the duration of the project, at minimum a single-travel lane will remain open in each direction on Route 13, and access will be maintained to the surrounding businesses. 

Starting as early as Wednesday, March 31, closure of the dedicated northbound right-turn lane on Route 13 (Lankford Highway) into the Country Plaza shopping center will be in place as part of the intersection improvements project at Stone Road. Motorists will be still be able to turn right to gain access to the Food Lion and neighboring stores, and should do so with caution from the rightmost travel lane. Existing side entry to the shopping center will remain open for additional access. 


The improvements will enhance safety in the corridor and create an efficient system to support a robust economy for residents in Northampton County.
