ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Crews are set to start construction on a Roanoke County intersection Sunday evening, marking the beginning of a road improvement project expected to wrap up by the end of the month.
According to Roanoke County Planning, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will kick off construction at the intersection of Electric Road (Route 419) and Colonial Avenue at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 12.
The goal of this project is to reportedly move both left turn lanes on Electric Road father left in order to improve driver sight distance along the roadway. However, in order to move the turn lanes, officials say crews will demolish the existing concrete medians, as well as perform some storm drain modifications.
Daytime lane closures are not anticipated to result from this project, which Roanoke County officials expect will be completed by the end of July.
