US 60 Bike, Pedestrian & Safety Improvement

Drainage and Roadway Improvements – July 2022

Scope of Work

This project involves bicycle, pedestrian and drainage improvements on Richmond Road beginning at Forge Road and ending just before Toano Middle School for a total length of 0.48 miles. Improvements include the addition of a landscaped median with pedestrian refuges, sidewalk and ADA ramp improvements, crosswalks, striped bike lanes on each side of the road, and storm drainage improvements. The project addresses inadequate drainage (PDF) by the installation of a parallel drainage system and additional inlets to drain existing isolated low points. Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Revenue Sharing funds will be received in July 2018 to help fund the project.
