A public hearing was held on October 17, 2019 at the Eastside Enhancement Center. A meeting brochure is available.
The primary purpose of this project is to replace the conventional intersection of New Cox Road (Route 460) and Courthouse Road (Route 627) with a modified median U-turn for enhanced safety and traffic flow. The modified median U-turn will eliminate direct left turns; drivers will turn right from side streets and make a U-turn at designated crossings. The proposed improvements require drivers to monitor only one direction of traffic and lessens the risk of serious injuries, costly property damage and fatalities. The project design can be constructed within existing VDOT right-of-way.
The proposed project will enhance motorist safety by eliminating direct left turn movements and requiring drivers to monitor only one direction of traffic.
