PUBLIC INVITED TO COMMENT ON INTERSECTION PROJECT AT ROUTE 17 BUSINESS (MAIN STREET) AND ROUTE 3/ROUTE 14 IN GLOUCESTER COUNTY
Project will add additional turn lanes to improve traffic flow at intersection, and will add sidewalks with handicapped-accessible ramps, crosswalks and pedestrian signals

FREDERICKSBURG – The public is invited to attend a design public hearing on Tuesday, June 12, to learn more about a project to improve the intersection of Route 17 Business (Main Street) and Route 3/Route 14 (John Clayton Memorial Highway) in Gloucester County.

The project will build dual left turn lanes and dual right turn lanes for Main Street traffic turning onto John Clayton Memorial Highway.

On John Clayton Memorial Highway, the traffic pattern would be changed at the intersection to allow for dual left turns onto southbound Main Street. One of the left turn lanes would be a shared lane, and would allow traffic to turn left, proceed straight across, or turn right.

Improvements would also be made for pedestrian traffic at the intersection. The project would build sidewalks with handicapped-accessible ramps and would install crosswalks and pedestrian signal equipment.

The design public hearing will be held:
