What's Being Done

The purpose of the project is to provide a roadway on new alignment to connect Route 60, Page Road and the Luck Stone entrance. This new roadway is in alignment with the Powhatan County long range plan to construct a parallel road to Route 60.

The new roadway will begin on Route 60 at the Virginia State Police crossover and run northwest approximately 2,900 feet and terminate at the intersection of the Luck Stone entrance approximately 1320 feet north of Route 60. The total project length is approximately 0.55 miles.

The new roadway will include two 12 foot travel lanes with 8 foot shoulders, 4 foot paved shoulders for pedestrian and bicycle accommodations and 6 foot ditches.

A right turn lane will be included on Route 60 at the new intersection with Carter Gallier Boulevard. It will consist of a 12 foot lane with a 10 foot shoulder and a 10 foot ditch.

Public Involvement

A public hearing was held on June 5, 2014 at the Powhatan County Village Building.

The brochure is available.

Traffic Impacts

A detour is anticipated on Page Road for approximately 10 calendar days while the new intersection is constructed.  The timing of this detour is not known at this time.
