Old News Road Improvements

Dec. 14, 2012

Scope of Work

The Old News Road Improvements project is a VDOT project that is locally administered by James City County.  The project consists of widening 0.39 miles of two-lane pavement, re-grading of roadside ditches and minor closed system drainage improvements. Old News Road connects News Road and Monticello Avenue and serves as a truck access point for the retail shops in Monticello Marketplace.  This project will remove the severe crown in the road cross section through a process of milling down the existing asphalt and subbase, providing a normal crowned road cross section.


Open to Public - Dec. 14, 2012

(Note:  County worked with Developer to finish the temporary section near Monticello Avenue for retailers prior to Black Friday, project completed on-time)


Original VDOT construction contract budget - $679,920.00
Total Change Orders - 2
Total Amount of Change Orders - $32,331.83
