Recently, the Henrico County Board of Supervisors heard an update on upcoming public works projects. The projects are coming from a mix of state, local and federal funding. Here’s a look at some of them:
Another long‐range plan is to add an interchange at North Gayton Road and Interstate 64. While the design and funding is still up in the air, one potential option is a diverging diamond interchange. If that’s chosen, it would be similar to the revised I‐64 interchange at Zion Crossroads.
VDOT's Richmond District says its $125 million paving program for 2016‐17 will resurface 1,540 lane miles of state‐maintained roads in the area. VDOT said the program is the largest ever, both in terms of lane miles and price tag, for the region.
The district oversees maintenance and construction on routes in 14 counties: Amelia, Brunswick, Charles City, Chesterﬁeld, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, New Kent, Nottoway, Powhatan and Prince George. It also includes the cities of Richmond, Colonial Heights, Hopewell and Petersburg. The district is responsible for about 18,000 miles of roads. About $27 million will be spent on local interstate sections, including 78 miles of asphalt paving and 18 lane miles of concrete repairs, on sections of Interstate 95, Interstate 295, Interstate 85 and Interstate 195.
The department said primary routes — including Chippenham Parkway, state Route 288, U.S. 60 and the Powhite Parkway — will get 480 lane miles of asphalt paving, repair and “latex‐modiﬁed treatment,” totaling $27 million. Secondary routes will see more than 941 lane miles of resurfacing, totaling more than $23 million. New projects will include:
