Traffic Impacts

Left turn lane closed

The left turn lane from Mechanicsville Tnpk. (Rt. 360) east to Sandy Lane will be permanently closed beginning April 18. Access to Sandy Lane from Mechanicsville Tnpk. (Rt. 360) west will remain.

Business entrance temporarily closed

As part of the Bell Creek Road relocation project, VDOT will close the entrance to the Applebee’s Grill & Bar™, starting on Monday, February 27. Those wishing to access the shopping center can do so about ¼ mile south at the Hanover Square entrance.  The entrance will likely reopen by June 2017, weather permitting. A flyer is available.

Right turn ramp closed

The right turn ramp from Bell Creek Rd. north to Mechanicsville Tnpk. (Rt. 360) east closed on Oct. 10, 2016. Traffic is being rerouted to the existing right shoulder on Bell Creek Rd. to access Rt. 360 east.

Semi-permanent lane closures

In preparation for traffic to switch to the the newly aligned section of Bell Creek Rd., crews will close one of two left turn lanes from will also be closed to allow crews to safely install storm drainage. These semi-permanent closures will begin on Nov. 11, 2016.

What's Being Done

The proposed projects include improvements along Route 360 between the I-295 interchange and Wynbrook Lane, including the relocation of Bell Creek Road.

  1. Relocation of Bell Creek Road - The current intersection with Route 360 will be moved 650 feet to the east aligning the road with the northern section of Bell Creek Road. The completed road will consist of four through lanes, a raised median, curb and gutter.
  2. Route 360 between I-295 and Wynbrook Lane - In order to address congestion, VDOT proposes to increase capacity from the current three lanes in each direction to four lanes between I-295 and the proposed Bell Creek Road intersection. Three lanes would remain in each direction between the proposed Bell Creek Road intersection and Wynbrook Lane. However, a continuous through/right turn lane would be added.
