This project involves improving traffic flow and safety by converting the intersection at Route 220 and Route 839/Route 1126 (International Parkway/Ashley Way) in Botetourt County to a restricted crossing U-turn (RCUT).  An RCUT is an innovative intersection that is safer and more efficient than a traditional intersection.  

This project will improve safety and traffic flow by converting the intersection at Route 220 and Route 839/Route 1126 (International Parkway/Ashley Way) in Botetourt County to a restricted crossing U-turn (RCUT) by:

  • Redirecting traffic that currently turns left from Route 839 (International Parkway) onto northbound Route 220 to turn right and proceed to make a U-turn
  • Redirecting traffic that currently turns left from Route 1126 (Ashley Way) onto southbound Route 220 to turn right and proceed to make a U-turn
  • Redirecting traffic that currently drives straight across Route 220 between Route 839 and Route 1126 to turn right and to make a U-turn
  • Adding a new crossover with a turn lane about 650 feet north of the intersection
  • Adding a new crossover with a turn lane about 650 feet south of the intersection
  • Modifying the crossover on Route 220 about 0.2 mile south of the intersection
  • Adding Route 220 pedestrian crossing accommodations.

Benefits 

This project will improve safety and traffic flow by converting the intersection at Route 220 and Route 836/Route 1126 (International Parkway/Ashley Way) in Botetourt County to a restricted crossing U-turn (RCUT).
