What Was Done
VDOT had identified several sight distance problems along a one mile section of Nash Road (Rt. 636) between Eastfair Drive and Applewhite Lane near Woodland Pond in Chesterfield County. Due to recent road grade and alignment adjustments, safety conditions for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians has improved. In addition, the road was widened to 12 feet in each direction with eight foot safety shoulders and a six foot ditch for drainage. Nash Road previously had two 9-foot lanes, one foot shoulders and two foot drainage ditches.
