Rolling Road Project – No, the sky isn’t falling, but practically every time I mention the project, someone will pipe up stating unawareness of the pending effort to widen RR. In my opinion we have to be prepared for the worst knowing that it won’t be. VDOT will do the project in phases all-the-while keeping at least one lane open for northbound (NB) and also southbound (SB) traffic. Expect some go around or more cut through traffic as drivers seek ways to avoid flagmen.
Funding still in the 6 Year Transportation Plan, year delay in Phase 1, Phase 2 construction to begin in Spring 2021.
Right of Way needed for Phase 1, on hold pending underground utility design for phase 2, consultant developing underground utility plan
Review of where we are with the Rolling Road widening project.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a meeting 6:30 – 8-30 PM, 30 November in the cafeteria at Rolling Valley Elementary School. They have spent considerable time, effort and money studying our requests and those from other subdivisions in the project sector: 1) to bury the overhead utility lines as part of the project; 2) to not add additional storm water volume to our overtaxed storm water drainage (SWD) system and, 3) to consider noise barriers as needed along the project length.
