Richmond Road Intersection Improvements at Route 199 West RampJames City County
Est Completion Date
Hampton Roads Communications
The purpose of this project is to mitigate congestion on the Route 199 westbound off-ramp onto Richmond Road (U.S. Route 60) in James City County by increasing the pavement width to the west toward the existing on ramp to allow for the construction of exclusive left and right turn lanes. The current congestion is due to queued left-turn vehicles blocking vehicles attempting to turn right onto Richmond Road from the single-lane off-ramp from Route 199.
The project will extend approximately 525 feet up the existing off-ramp from the intersection with Route 60.
The project was completed on-budget and ahead of schedule on May 24, 2016.
There are no additional ramp closures scheduled for this project at this time.
Several daytime full-ramp closures took place on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the Route 199 westbound off-ramp to Richmond Road, as well as the Richmond Road on-ramp to Route 199 west. Signs will be in place to alert motorists to the ramp closures and detour before and during the closures.
During the Route 199 westbound off-ramp closure, traffic will be detoured as follows:
Route 199 westbound traffic:
Traffic will continue westbound on Route 199 to the Mooretown Road (Route 603) west exit, continue under the overpass, and then use the ramp to Route 199 east to the Route 60 exit.
During the Richmond Road to Route 199 West on-ramp closure, traffic will be detoured as follows:
Route 60 westbound traffic:
Turn right on Lightfoot Road (Route 646) to Mooretown Road (Route 603) and back to the westbound on-ramp to Route 199.
Route 60 eastbound traffic:
Turn left on Lightfoot Road (Route 646), right on Mooretown Road (Route 603), and back to the westbound on-ramp to Route 199.
Centerville Road (Route 614) traffic:
Turn left on Richmond Road (Route 60), turn right on Lightfoot Road (Route 646), turn right on Mooretown Road (Route 603), and back to the westbound on-ramp to Route 199.
