Project Purpose

The primary purpose of this project is to improve safety and increase capacity at the intersection of Route 607 (Matthew Mill Road) and Route 29 (Seminole Trail) in Ruckersville.

Route 607 is a two-lane connector road serving a growing amount of local traffic, due to recent development in the area. It also provides a cut-through for commuters between Route 29 and Route 33 to the east. At its intersection with Route 29, Route 607 presently has a shared left-turn/through lane and an exclusive right-turn lane.

Route 607 currently carries 7,112 vehicles per day.

What Is Proposed?

VDOT proposes to widen Route 607 to five lanes where it meets Route 29. The widening will provide an eastbound left-turn lane into the Sheetz service center and an additional westbound left-turn lane onto Route 29 south.
