VDOT TO HOLD HEARING ON ROUTE 58 PROJECT OVER ROUTE 311 IN PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY

LYNCHBURG — On Tuesday, March 6, from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a design public hearing to discuss a $3.3-million safety improvement project on Route 58, South Boston Road at Route 311, Berry Hill Road in Pittsylvania County. There is an inclement weather date of March 13.

The hearing will be held at Brosville Elementary School located at 195 Bulldog Lane in Danville.

This project will reconstruct the intersection of Route 58 and Route 311. The reconstructed intersection will consist of a right turn lane, left/thru lane and a left turn lane for northbound traffic at the intersection. The turn lanes for eastbound traffic will be adjusted to improve operations and capacity. In addition, the signal will be replaced to address the new intersection configuration.

The design public hearing is being held to provide an opportunity for citizens or organizations to give input on the project and will be held in an “open-house” format. VDOT representatives will be present to discuss the project and answer questions.

Comments about the project may be submitted at the hearing or until March 16, 2018, (March 23, inclement weather) by mail to Mr. Brian Casto PE, Virginia Department of Transportation, 4219 Campbell Avenue, Lynchburg, VA 24501. E-mail comments can be sent to brian.casto@vdot.virginia.gov. Please reference “Route 58 Public Hearing Comments” in the subject heading.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact Brian Casto at 434-856-8276, 800-367-7623 or TTY/TDD 711.
