Transportation Bond Project Completed

The fourth project from the transportation bond referendum is finished. A new traffic signal and turning lanes have been added to the intersection of Mine, Hardwood and Campbell roads.

From the county:

The project includes adding turning lanes on Mine Road and on Hardwood Lane. Campbell Drive was reconstructed to tie to the newly widened Mine Road.

Heavy traffic volumes on Mine 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. Dewberry provided a “context sensitive” design that fits the turn lane improvements into the existing

neighborhood setting without major changes or disruptions to front yards of residents living along Mine Road. The total cost for design, right of way acquisition, construction and utility work adds up to just under $2.7 million.

And pictured above: Supervisors Gary Skinner and Benny Pitts flip the switch for the new traffic signal.
