VDOT COMPLETES INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT AT PATTERSON AVENUE AND PARHAM ROAD
Project will improve safety and capacity
HENRICO – A $14 million project to add turn lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks at the intersection of Parham Road and Patterson Avenue in the western area of Henrico County is complete.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) began the project in May 2021. Specifically, two additional left turn lanes were added on Patterson Avenue in each direction as drivers approach Parham Road from both the east and west. Additionally, two left turn lanes were installed for drivers traveling north on Parham Road, as well as a “right turn only” lane. Finally, the left turn lane capacity was extended for drivers traveling south on Parham Road heading eastbound on Patterson Avenue.
The newly-completed project includes crosswalks along Parham Road on the east side, south of Patterson Avenue and on the west side, north of the intersection. Crosswalks have also been installed at the intersection to cross both Patterson Avenue and Parham Road.
Anyone with questions about the project can call VDOT’s customer service center at 800-FOR-ROAD (800-367-7623). For the latest real-time traffic information or road conditions, call 511 or visit http://www.511virginia.org.
