What's Being Done

This project, administered by Hanover County, will extend Atlee Road approximately 1/2 mile. The road will connect to Atlee Station Road near Warren Avenue. The project includes a bridge over the railroad, a traffic signal and modifications to Cool Spring Road and Atlee Station Road to connect with the new Atlee Road extension. Sidewalks and accomodations for bicycles are included in the project.

Traffic Impacts

There is no detour during “Phase 1” construction.  There will be construction signage, flaggers directing traffic and activity. More information will be posted later on the schedule and length of the proposed detour phases as the contractors construction schedule is defined. Phase 2 is not expected to begin before fall 2017.

Public Involvement

A community meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at Atlee Station High School, located at 9414 Atlee Station Rd., Mechanicsville, VA 23116. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. in the school's auditorium. The meeting brochure and brochure insert are now available for viewing.

The goal of this meeting is to help residents prepare for the road changes and adequately plan for changes to their commutes and trips to schools in the area. The County will provide an overview of the project and review the various detour phases and their anticipated timing during the 2017-18 school year. Citizens will be able to ask questions and get answers about the project.
