CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON SHARED USE PATH ON COURTHOUSE ROAD (ROUTE 155) IN CHARLES CITY
The path creates added cyclist and pedestrian accommodations

SOUTH CHESTERFIELD—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin construction on a shared use path on Courthouse Road (Route 155) in Charles City County starting the week of March 9. 

The purpose of this project is to construct a multiuse path for pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles on the westbound side of Courthouse Road connecting to the existing Virginia Capital Trail on John Tyler Memorial Highway (Route 5). The shared use path will extend from Route 5 to Charles City County High School.

Anticipated traffic impacts for the duration of the project include daytime lane closures Monday through Friday on Courthouse Road and John Tyler Memorial Highway between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The total cost of the project is estimated at $1.1 million. Weather permitting, work is expected to be complete in summer 2020.

Anyone with questions about the project can call (800) 367-7623 or visit https://my.vdot.virginia.gov/.
