New Traffic Light for Safety
The county plans to finish on May 21 the new traffic signal at the intersection of Harrison/Kingswood/Beauclaire. This is the second 2005 bond referendum project completed for the major secondary roads listed.
The County’s PPTA Design-Build Team, Spotsylvania County Infrastructure (SCI), is comprised of Shirley Contracting Company, English Construction Company and Dewberry engineers. The scope of the intersection project includes adding turning lanes on the side streets of Kingswood Blvd. and Beauclaire Blvd., and installing a new traffic signal.
Heavy traffic volumes on Harrison Road made turning into and out of the subdivisions difficult, making this one of the county’s "High Accident Locations." The project is fully funded from the 2006 bond issuance approved by the Spotsylvania Board of Supervisors. All of the work was done within the existing right of way, with the total construction and utility work adding up to just under $500,000.
