Work to improve safety at the intersection of News and Centerville Roads is set to begin, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. And that IS good news for Ford’s Colony residents who traverse that intersection just outside of the neighborhood.
Planned improvements include installing a traffic light, a right-turn lane from News onto Centerville, and left- and right-hand turn lanes off of Centerville.
The light and new turn lanes are designed to address current and future capacity issues at that intersection. VDOT predicts traffic on both roads will increase approximately 25 percent over the next 20 years.
