Intersection Improvements at Patterson Avenue and Parham Road
|Traffic operation and safety improvements in Henrico County|
Project at a Glance
The purpose of this project is to improve intersection capacity at Parham Road and Patterson Avenue by providing extra turn lanes and vehicle storage. On Patterson Avenue, dual left turn lanes are proposed in both directions as well as the extension of the eastbound right turn lane. On Parham Road, dual left turn lanes and a right turn lane heading northbound are proposed. Extra vehicle storage will be added to the southbound left turn lane by closing the median at Wetherly Drive.
The signal at the intersection will be replaced and updated. Pedestrian sidewalk will be provided along Parham Road on the east side south of Patterson Avenue and on the west side north of Patterson Avenue.
At the intersection crosswalks are going to be provided to cross both Patterson Avenue and Parham Road. Median closures and turn restrictions will be implemented at certain locations for access management.
During construction, one lane of traffic will be maintained in all directions at the intersection. Periodic short-term multiple lane closures may be necessary during some phases of construction.
