Route 628 (Smith Station Road), Turn Lanes and Signal Modification
Project at a Glance
This project will add a lane on Smith Station Road and lengthen the left turn lane on the northbound approach to Courthouse Road.
This will result in separate left, through traffic, and right turn lanes for northbound traffic on Smith Station Road.
After the project is complete, VDOT's analysis shows the line of waiting vehicles in the afternoon peak hour traveling northbound on Smith Station Road will be reduced from 4,375 feet to under 600 feet.
We will also modify the traffic signal to remove the poles from the median to improve safety at the intersection.
