What Was Done

The purpose of the project was to increase safety by improving and widening Route 250 (Broad Street) from about one-quarter mile west of the intersection with Manakin Road (Route 621) to one-tenth mile east of the intersection with Hockett Road (Route 623). The project also realigned the Route 621 intersection to improve sight distance, upgraded drainage and installed a divided concrete median in an area that is projected to see continuing population and traffic growth.


The project as originally contracted is completed. Landscaping will be done during the fall planting season.
