Coming Soon: Longhill Road Widening

SMART SCALE Dashboard

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

The 2014 Longhill Road Corridor Study proposed various improvements to Longhill Road to relieve congestion, improve safety, and enhance other forms of transit.

Based on the study, this project will widen Longhill Road from two lanes to a 4-lane, median divided typical section from 465 feet east of Williamsburg West Drive to 1,082 feet west of the Olde Towne Road/Devon Road intersection. A 10-foot shared-use path along the north side of the roadway will also be included.

The design will maintain and/or implement desirable access management strategies, such as right-in/right-out/channelized left-turn lanes. The improvements will also include a roundabout at Longhill Road and Williamsburg Plantation Drive, signal system wireless interconnect, construction of bus pull-off areas, and pedestrian improvements (a shared-use path, crosswalks and pedestrian push buttons). The outside lane will have extra width to accommodate cyclists.

Traffic will be maintained with a minimum of a single lane in each direction throughout the project duration. During construction, access will be maintained for local businesses and residences.

Benefits 

This project is intended to relieve congestion on Longhill Road by widening from two lanes to four lanes separated by a raised median, as well as enhance bicycle, pedestrian and bus accommodations. 

Major Milestones 

All right of way has been acquired and utility relocation is currently underway. Advertisment for construction will be April 2019, with construction starting late summer 2019.
