A Citizen Information Meeting was held on April 15, 2015 from 5-7 pm at the Information Technology Building, City of Lynchburg, 3550 Young Place, Lynchburg, VA 24501. The purpose was to introduce the Design-Build team and deliver a technical presentation on roundabouts.
A public hearing on Segments B1 and B2 was held on August 4, 2015. The Design-Build team discussed and received feedback from affected property owners relating to the project design and impacts.
A "Pardon Our Dust" Meeting was held on January 12, 2016. The format included a presentation on the construction schedule, maintenance of traffic and other items.
This project involved the construction of a new interchange at Route 29/460, improvements to Route 29/460, the extension of Odd Fellows Road and a roundabout at the intersection of Odd Fellows Road and Top Ridge Road.
Existing Odd Fellows Road was reconstructed to a three lane section with curb, gutter and lighting from north of Route 29/460 to Mayflower Drive, including a roundabout at the intersection.
This project addressed congestion on a major corridor. In addition, it provided a more direct route for traffic from Route 460/29 to Mayflower Drive, a corridor with increasing commercial use. Combined with the next phase, it serves as an alternate route for traffic from Route 460/29 to Route 29 Business.
