Project description

"The project would have four main elements:

  1. Add a right-turn only for eastbound traffic on 250 (turning right onto Peter Jefferson Parkway) to reduce rear-end crashes at this intersection; the existing shared right-turn/thru-lane should be converted to thru-only
  2. Implement a “Thru-cut” at the 250/Peter Jefferson Parkway intersection such that thru-movements on the minor approaches are eliminated to maximize signal efficiencies and reduce delay
  3. Construct a new park and ride lot on the northwest corner of the 250/Peter Jefferson Parkway intersection
  4. Complete the median between Pantops Mountain Road and Peter Jefferson Parkway – this access management treatment is intended to improve safety and reduce delay. This application may include at-grade pedestrian crossings of 250 at Pantops Mountain Road and/or Peter Jefferson Parkway." [1]
