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.
