In Design: Route 11 and Route 16 intersection improvements in Marion (Smyth County)

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

The primary purpose of the project is to improve the turning radius at the intersection of Routes 11 and 16 and improve pedestrian access at the intersection. The intersection is being designed to accommodate vehicles with a 40' wheelbase (small tractor-trailer). Pendleton Street will change to a one-way street from the apartment complex to Route 11.

VDOT held an in-person public meeting and a virtual public meeting for the project in August 2021.


The project will improve the turning radius for accessing economic developments along Route 11 and improve pedestrian access at the intersection.
