Summer Construction Recap
Summer is a busy season for our Facilities & Environmental Services Department, which manage the County’s capital construction projects. See how we’ve been working to improve our community.
The Rio Road / Avon Street / US 250 Rockfish Gap Pike Sidewalks Project (pictured below) is a VDOT Revenue Sharing project that supports pedestrian safety by providing sidewalk and storm water system improvements along Rio Road, Avon Street, and US 250 West (Rockfish Gap Turnpike).
The Rio Road portion of the project connects the Stonehenge residential neighborhood to the John Warner Parkway and Rio Road sidewalk system.
The Avon Street segment provides sidewalks on the east side from Swan Lake Drive to Mill Creek Drive and then to Mountain View Elementary School, and on the west side from Stoney Creek Drive to Arden Drive.
The US 250 West-Crozet segment consists of the construction of sidewalks from Cory Farms to the Shoppes of Clover Lawn, and sidewalks and an at-grade crosswalk to the Blue Ridge Shopping Center. This segment also includes “traffic-calming” changes that should result in an overall speed reduction to improve public safety along this busy corridor. This project is scheduled to be complete in early October.
