The primary purpose of this project is to improve safety and operations by constructing passing lanes along an approximately 2-mile section of Route 501 near Route 610 in Halifax County, widening shoulders, including edgeline and centerline rumble stripes and adjusting the vertical alignment to address sight distance issues.

The new section of roadway will have two 12-foot travel lanes, one 12-foot passing lane, 8-foot shoulders with 4-foot paved and 4-foot ditches in areas requiring cut.


This project will improve safety along a heavily traveled corridor with significant truck traffic.
