About the Project:
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and capacity by adding turn lanes and signalizing the intersection at Centerville Road and News Road in James City County.
The proposed design includes adding:
- One left turn lane southbound from Centerville Road onto News Road
- One right turn lane northbound from Centerville Road onto News Road that will improve sight distance
- One right turn lane westbound from News Road onto Centerville Road
- New traffic signal to address existing and future capacity issues
- Mountable curb on right turn lanes and left turn lane widening in order to reduce property impacts
