MAJOR MILESTONE MET MONTHS EARLY ON COURTLAND INTERCHANGE PROJECT
Two roundabouts and two bridges introduced into interchange
SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY – Contract crews for the Virginia Department of Transportation opened two roundabouts and a flyover at Route 58 and Jerusalem Road, in Courtland eliminating the need for the traffic signal.
This major milestone is reached months early in the Courtland Interchange Project that began in March 2016. The completion date for the project is December 2018, but crews are expected to complete the project months early.
The traffic patterns include two roundabouts on each side of Route 58 directing traffic through the intersections in a one-way pattern, and the removal of a traffic signal on Route 58. A flyover was built over Route 58 as part of the relocated Route 742. A second Route 742 bridge was built to minimize environmental impacts. The construction of the Route 58 westbound on-ramp is expected to be completed within a week, allowing traffic to flow in the permanent pattern.
Roundabouts are new to this area and motorists should follow the directional signs and yield to traffic when entering the roundabout.
