Project Description

The project is located in Isle of Wight County just east of the City of Franklin. The county has a population of 35,270. Carrsville Highway is a rural minor arterial roadway with a current average daily traffic (ADT) of 3,000 vehicles, 5 percent of which are trucks. The ADT is projected to be 3,800 vehicles per day in design year 2035. The existing right of way is sixty six feet minimum and the posted speed limit is 45 MPH.

The purpose of the project is to improve the safety clearance of the railroad crossing underneath Carrsville Highway. The proposed bridge will be raised to accommodate the required clearance impacting the vertical alignment of the roadway.  The roadway will consist of two 12’ lanes, a 4’ median, and 10’ shoulders (8’ paved).  Also included in the project is the improvement of roadside ditches and adding water quality swales to treat the storm water run-off.

A detour and road closure will be scheduled for this project. Residents will be notified in advance of construction.
