Project Status

VDOT held a citizen information meeting at Montpelier on June 20, 2017 to discuss the safety improvement project.

The purpose of this project is to construct a roundabout at the existing two-way stop intersection of Route 20 (Constitution Highway) and Route 231 (Blue Ridge Turnpike).

A public hearing to share design plans will be held in early 2018. 

Project Details

Between 2010 and 2015, 26 crashes occurred at this intersection resulting in 32 injuries. VDOT has installed rumble strips and intersection ahead signs with advance warning flashers to advise motorists to use caution approaching the area but the rate of crashes has remained consistent. 

This proposed project will help reduce crashes and more efficiently move traffic through the intersection. Approximately 3,800 vehicles use Route 20 daily. The traffic count on Route 231 is about 1,200 vehicles per day.

Construction is anticipated to take about one year and will require periodic lane closures.
