Traffic alerts ►
Construction begins next week to improve travel for pedestrians in Gloucester County at the northern intersection of Route 17 and Route 17 Business (Main Street), and between this intersection and McFadden Way.
The $950,000 project, funded through Virginia’s SMART SCALE program, is scheduled to be completed in late January 2021.
The project enhances safety and provides new pedestrian access between residential areas, commercial destinations and employment centers in this area.
Six new crosswalks will be built at various points at these two intersections, and they will connect with around 1,100 feet of new sidewalk with handicapped-accessible ramps. Two concrete islands, also known as a pedestrian refuge, will be built to provide a protected location for pedestrians to stand while crossing Route 17. Pedestrian crossing equipment will be installed at crossing locations.
- Improves pedestrian travel at intersection by adding additional crossing equipment, crosswalks, and a pedestrian refuge area.
