VDOT TO HOST CITIZEN INFORMATION MEETING FOR ROUTE 15 PROJECT IN PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY
Meeting Scheduled for August 15 in Farmville

LYNCHBURG — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a citizen information meeting  regarding improvements to Route 15, Farmville Road, in Prince Edward County. 

The primary purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow and safety on Route 15, in Prince Edward County from 0.293 miles south of Route 778 to Route 628.  There are currently two traffic lanes with a posted 45 mile per hour (mph) speed limit.

This project will develop one southbound and two northbound lanes with a 50 mph design speed.  In addition, a right turn lane is proposed between the existing connections with Routes 778 and 628.  Other improvements will be made to the intersections at these routes.

The project will consist of overlay, installing raised median and shoulder widening from 0.293 miles south of Route 778 to Route 778 and full reconstruction from Route 778 to existing Route 628.  The existing two-to-four foot shoulders will be increased to 10 feet.  

The approximately $6.9 million project could be advertised for construction in November 2012.

The meeting will be held on Monday, August 15, 2011, between 4 and 6 p.m. at the

Prince Edward County Natural Resources and Agricultural Building Conference Room, 100 Dominion Drive, Farmville, VA 23901.

Additional information on the project can be viewed at VDOT’s Lynchburg District Office at 4219 Campbell Avenue, Lynchburg, VA 24501, 434-947-6559, 800-367-7623, TTY/TDD 711.  Please call ahead to ensure the availability of appropriate personnel to answer your questions.
