The Route 17 (Carrollton Boulevard) at Route 258 (Brewers Neck Boulevard) Capacity Improvements project in Isle of Wight County encompasses traffic signalization improvements, roadway elevation adjustment for improved drainage and intersection paving, along with development of new turn lanes and through lanes.

March 25, 2022 press release - ROUTE 17 AND ROUTE 258 INTERSECTION PROJECT COMPLETE AHEAD OF SCHEDULE AND UNDER BUDGET 

Roadway Improvements

The project added a single southbound left-turn lane from Route 17 south into the James River Crossings development and a second northbound left-turn lane from Route 17 north onto Route 258 west. Project crews also added one new through lane on Route 258 east entering the James River Crossings development that will remain closed until the remaining work performed by the private developer is complete. The James River Crossings developers will be installing the fourth and final signal of the intersection. 

Benefits 

The primary purpose of this project is to improve capacity and enhance overall level-of-service conditions now and into the future based on existing and anticipated future traffic volumes. The operational enhancements to this intersection of two regionally significant routes will also preserve and/or protect the ability of the Route 17 corridor to safely and efficiently sustain the mobility people and goods in the Hampton Roads Region.

Major Milestones 

Design began in 2019, followed by right-of-way acquisition in 2020. The $3.25 million construction contract was awarded to Henry S. Branscome, LLC on February 25, 2021. Construction started in May 2021 and was completed ahead of schedule and under budget in spring 2022.
