Skiffes Creek Connector
|James City County|
Project at a Glance
Estimated Construction Date: 2019
About the Project
This project will provide strategic connectivity between U.S. Route 60 and State Route 143 in the vicinity of the Walmart Distribution Center in James City County to redirect industrial traffic away from James River Elementary School, remove traffic from the Lee Hall community in the city of Newport News, and provide long-range, additional access to Fort Eustis.
These improvements are also critical to the regional transportation system to provide improved access to Virginia's ports and enhanced accessibility to existing corporations.
Improvements include a four-lane connector from U.S. Route 60 to State Route 143, two bridges on the proposed connector and a traffic signal at the new intersections.
This project is included in the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization's FY2012-2015 Transportation Improvement Program, and was added to the 2034 Long-Range Transportation Plan as a stand-alone project for preliminary engineering and right-of-way. Location study is underway.
