To increase vehicle capacity and alleviate traffic congestion during peak traffic times at the intersection of Route 199 (Humelsine Parkway) and Brookwood Drive in James City County, the following improvements will be completed:
Widening of Brookwood Drive:
The current lane configuration on Brookwood Drive at the intersection of Route 199 consists of one left turn-through lane and one right turn lane. This project will convert the existing right turn lane onto Route 199 east to a left-turn/through lane, as well as add a new right-turn lane on Brookwood Drive onto Route 199 east.
Once completed, the new lane configuration on Brookwood Drive will consist of one dedicated left-turn lane, one left-turn/through lane and one dedicated right-turn lane onto Route 199.
- Median modifications on Route 199
- Signal head replacement at the intersection
- Drainage improvements
Due to the high volume of traffic on Route 199 and to keep traffic impacts to a minimum, single-lane closures will take place nightly, Sunday through Friday, starting as early as 7 p.m. and ending no later than 6 a.m. No daytime lane closures or other weekend work is planned at this time, and access to businesses will be maintained at all times.
Day and nighttime lane closures will also take place on Brookwood Drive as needed.
March 5-11: Most of the work this week will be limited to the shoulder, so there are no scheduled lane closures for this week.
The $358,000 construction contract was awarded to Henry S. Branscome, LLC, of Williamsburg, VA on November 16, 2017.
A notice to proceed construction was issued to the contractor on Monday, March 5, 2018, with an estimated completion date of mid-summer 2018.
