Route 3 and Orange Plank Road

Construction started in May 2024 to modify the intersection of Route 3 and Orange Plank Rd. to a new traffic pattern to enhance safety, improve traffic flow, and reduce conflict points. Project completion in summer 2024.

Route 17 is being widened to four lanes until just east of the Hospital Boulevard/Germanna Point Drive intersection. A shared-use path, sidewalk, and pedestrian crossing equipment will be added as part of the project. Project completion was scheduled for late Feb. 2024.

Mudd Tavern Road is being widened to four lanes between I-95 and Route 1. A new secondary access route, Route 2092, will be built parallel to Mudd Tavern Road, and will connect with South Roxbury Mill Road and Dan Bell Lane. Project completion in May 2025.

Lee Hill School Drive and Old Dominion Parkway Mini-Roundabout

Construction is underway to build a mini-roundabout at the Lee Hill School Drive and Old Dominion Parkway intersection. A roundabout traffic pattern is currently in place as construction continues to build the center island and median islands. Travelers can expect lane closures and periodic traffic control directed by a flagging crew as construction progresses. Passenger vehicles can pass through the intersection during construction. Tractor-trailers and oversized vehicles will be detoured for short durations to allow concrete to cure for islands. Mini roundabouts are circular intersections where all traffic moves in a counter-clockwise direction around a center island. Traffic entering the mini roundabout slows down and yields to traffic already inside. Mini roundabouts operate the same way as a traditional roundabout but have a smaller diameter and their paved center island can be driven over by trucks and other large vehicles when necessary. Project completion scheduled for early November 2024.

Westmoreland County

Route 658 (Monroe Bay Circle)

Monroe Bay Circle is reduced to a single travel lane with a temporary bridge spanning Monroe Creek. A temporary traffic signal is directing one-way, alternating traffic. The bridge is a temporary measure to maintain traffic flow while a bridge replacement project is advanced.
