Description

NEW/REPLACEMENT SIGNS  APPEAR IN COUNTY CURVES

Over 400 signs  placed across Lynchburg District

Property owners and motorists noticed stakes or new/replacement signs placed in curves along state right of way across much of the Lynchburg District. Over 400 signs were installed, with more than 200 in Campbell County alone.

The work was done as part of a Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) mandate to sign appropriate curves on roadways that have over 1000 vehicles a day and are classified as arterial or collector roads. Arterial roads are high-capacity urban roadways that move traffic from collector roads to freeways/expressways; collector roads are low-to-moderate capacity roads that move traffic from local streets to arterial roads.     

The work has other advantages, including the posting of lower advisory speeds in some locations, better reflectivity on some signs, and additional warnings that may help motorists safely navigate the serpentine areas of roadway.

McClain & Co., Inc., contractor was awarded a $466,576 contract to complete the work in the ten-county district. Installations beganin March and the work was completed by late-September
