What's Being Done

The purpose of the project is to improve safety and reduce congestion by widening Route 711 (Robious Road/Huguenot Trail) from two lanes to four lanes between Route 288 and the Chesterfield/Powhatan County line.

The project will add bike lanes on both sides of Route 711 and a sidewalk on the south side from the Bernards Creek bridge to the county line. The bridge over Bernards Creek will also be replaced as part of this project.

Project location

Along Route 711 (Huguenot Trail/Robious Road), 0.4 miles east of Route 288 to 0.1 mile east of the Powhatan/Chesterfield County line.

Note: There is also a Chesterfield County Transportation project in this area.

Traffic impacts

There will be intermittent alternating lane closures weekdays from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
