VDOT TO HOLD HEARING ON ROUTE 460 BUSINESS PROJECT AT ROUTE 622 IN CAMPBELL COUNTY

LYNCHBURG — On Tuesday, June 12, from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a design public hearing to discuss a $3.2-million improvement project on Route 460 Business (Timberlake Road) at Route 622 (Waterlick Road) in Campbell County. There is an inclement weather date of Tuesday, June 19.

The hearing will be held at the Ramey Memorial Auditorium, VDOT District Complex, 4303 Campbell Avenue (Highway 501) in the City of Lynchburg.

The purpose of the project is to improve the safety and operations of the existing Timberlake Road intersection with Waterlick Road. The project will extend and offset the left turn lanes on Timberlake Road and extend the right turn lane westbound on Waterlick Road. In addition, Waterlick Road west of the intersection will be widened to accommodate left turning truck movements. The signal at the intersection will also be upgraded.

During construction any work requiring lane closures will occur overnight or on weekends. 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 June 22, 2018, (June 29, inclement weather) by mail to Mr. Brian Casto, P.E., 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 460 at Route 622 Public Hearing Comments” in the subject heading.
