About the Project

This project aims to improve safety and operations at the intersection of Blackburn Road and Rippon Boulevard. It will also provide additional sidewalk connections from Blackburn Road to the shared-use path along Rippon Boulevard.

The project will install a new traffic signal at the intersection of Blackburn Road and Rippon Boulevard. Based on VDOT's traffic study, existing congestion and crash history at this location warrants installing a traffic signal. In addition, the turn lanes on Rippon Boulevard that have not been in use since the intersection became a four-way stop will be restored as part of pavement resurfacing and restriping.

At the intersection, Blackburn Road averages up to 8,800 vehicles a day and Rippon Boulevard averages up to 12,000 vehicles.
