NEW ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION PROJECT BEGINNING ON CARTER GALLIER BOULEVARD IN POWHATAN
New roadway will act as a parallel to Anderson Highway/Route 60
COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Weather permitting, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews will begin work on a project to construct a new roadway on Carter Gallier Boulevard (Route 1343) in Powhatan County on Sunday, September 17. The purpose of the project is to provide a roadway on new alignment to connect Anderson Highway (Route 60), Page Road (Route 675) and the Luck Stone entrance. This new roadway is in alignment with the Powhatan County long range plan to construct a parallel road to Route 60.
The new roadway will begin on Route 60 at the Virginia State Police crossover and run northwest to the intersection of the Luck Stone entrance. The new roadway will include two 12 foot travel lanes with pedestrian and bicycle accommodations. A right turn lane will also be included on Route 60 at the new intersection with Carter Gallier Boulevard.
Drivers can expect daytime single lane closures on Route 60 Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Other traffic impacts will include an approximately 10 day detour (to be scheduled) on Page Road while the new intersection is being constructed.
The work is expected to be complete in summer 2018. For more information about the project, visit http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/richmond/carter_gallier.asp.
