Cost and schedule ►
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and lessen traffic congestion along Route 17/29 Business/211 (Broadview Avenue) in the Town of Warrenton. The project calls for installation of a raised median from Route 211 (Lee Highway) to south of Route 17 (James Madison Highway), a 0.73-mile stretch.
The project will also improve the intersection of Route 211, Broadview Avenue, Shirley Avenue and Waterloo Street. The improvements will add turn lanes, bike lanes, upgrade the traffic signals and enhance pedestrian crossings.

VDOT is working with the town of Warrenton to develop a design that improves safety while maintaining access for residents and businesses.
In fall 2018, the town of Warrenton proposed an alternative design for the project and held a Citizen Information Meeting in late January 2019 to present the new plans to the public.
The project design is being developed and will be presented at a public hearing in summer 2019. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2022.
During the FY18 SMART SCALE process, the Town of Warrenton split the Broadview Avenue project and submitted two applications to:
- Complete funding on the Broadview Avenue roadway improvements, in the amount of $2.59 million.
- Fund a second $2.8 million project to make improvements at the intersection of Broadview, Frost and West Shirley avenues.
On June 20, 2017, the Commonwealth Transportation Board approved the 2018-2023 Six-Year Improvement Plan, which allocated $5.4 million to fully fund the Broadview Avenue project through construction.
The combined total estimate of the project is about $8 million comprised of approximately $1.6 million remaining in previous funding, $5.4 million in SMART SCALE funding and $1 million from the Town of Warrenton.
This project will improve safety and lessen traffic congestion along Route 17/29 Business/211 (Broadview Avenue) in the Town of Warrenton.
