PEDESTRIAN ACCOMMODATIONS PROJECT BEGINS ALONG W. BROAD STREET (ROUTE 250) IN HENRICO
Project will enhance pedestrian safety at signalized intersections along the corridor

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. — Starting in mid-February, Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews will begin construction to provide pedestrian accommodations on W. Broad Street (Route 250) in Henrico County, weather permitting. The purpose of the $1.9 million project is to provide enhanced pedestrian safety at signalized intersections along the W. Broad Street corridor between the Richmond City line and Interstate 64.

The new accommodations will include sidewalks, ramps, crosswalks and pedestrian signals. Travelers can expect to see work at the following intersections:

• Forest Avenue,
• Dickens Road,
• the Home Depot entrance,
• Horsepen Road,
• and Libbie Avenue.

“Once complete, these new accommodations will offer enhanced safety and improved connectivity for those who travel in this busy area,” said VDOT Area Construction Engineer Brian Ramsey.

Travelers can expect intermittent lane and shoulder closures for the duration of the project. Work will include both daytime and nighttime lane closures during off-peak travel times.

The work is expected to be complete in summer 2018. For more information about the project, visit: http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/richmond/pedestrian_accommodations_along_w._broad_street_in_henrico.asp.
