Project Overview

To increase vehicle capacity and alleviate traffic congestion during peak traffic times at the intersection of Route 199 (Humelsine Parkway) and Brookwood Drive in James City County, the following improvements will be completed:

Widening of Brookwood Drive:

The current lane configuration on Brookwood Drive at the intersection of Route 199 consists of one left turn-through lane and one right turn lane. This project will convert the existing right turn lane onto Route 199 east to a left-turn/through lane, as well as add a new right-turn lane on Brookwood Drive onto Route 199 east. 

Once completed, the new lane configuration on Brookwood Drive will consist of one dedicated left-turn lane, one left-turn/through lane and one dedicated right-turn lane onto Route 199. 

Additional Improvements:

  • Median modifications on Route 199
  • Signal head replacement at the intersection
  • Drainage improvements

Traffic Impacts: 

March 26-April 1: Turn lane closed from Route 199 east into Holly Hill Carriage Homes March 26, from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., then nights, March 27-29 from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning. The detour will be a U-turn at South Henry Street. Single-lane nightly closures on Route 199 west at the Brookwood intersection March 27-29 from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning.

March 5-11: Most of the work this week will be limited to the shoulder, so there are no scheduled lane closures for this week.
