Project Description

The primary purpose of this project is to improve safety and traffic operations at the Ferndale Road (Route 600) and Cox Road (Route 226) intersection and the Boydton Plank Road (Route 1) and Cox Road (Route 226) intersection. 

The signal at Ferndale Road and Cox Road intersection will be replaced with a single lane roundabout which will address safety and road capacity needs, along with improving aesthetics. The Route 1 at Cox Road intersection improvements will consist of minor widening to provide better turning movements and to accommodate bicyclists.
