Project Details

Rural Rustic Road reconstruction project on Route 639 (Higgins Hollow Road) extending from Route 638 to the dead end of Route 639. All work will be completed within the existing right-of way. The road surface will be graded, widened, and where possible drainage will be improved. The road will receive a surface treatment pavement. All work will be completed within the existing right-of way.  

The total estimated cost for this project is $161,300, which includes $5,000 for preliminary engineering and $156,300 for construction.

The Rural Rustic road program provides cost efficient paving to unpaved roads, staying in the current right of way. Typically for a road to be eligible for the program it must be an unpaved road already within the state secondary system and carry no more than 1500 vehicles per day.

Benefits of Project

The Rural Rustic Road Program is a practical approach to paving Virginia's low-volume roads. It aims to keep traditional rural lane ambience, while improving the road surface within the current right-of-way.

During Construction

No road closures are anticipated but motorists should be alert for work zones and flagging operations.
