ROUTE 20-231 ROUNDABOUT COMPLETE
Project finished on-time and on-budget
CULPEPER — Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Route 20 (Constitution Highway) and Route 231 (Blue Ridge Turnpike) in Orange County finished on-time Dec. 7.
Under a $1.8 million construction contract, Chemung Contracting Corp. of Mitchells replaced the two-way stop intersection with a single-lane roundabout.
The roundabout will improve safety at the Old Somerset intersection. Roundabouts are safer than stop-controlled intersection because traffic can continually and efficiently flow through the intersection and vehicle operating speeds are lower.
