The original item was published from March 27, 2020 10:08 AM to December 2, 2021 3:17 PM

Installation of pole mounted speed display signs, a short-term safety improvement for both Evergreen Mills Road and Watson Road, will begin in approximately four to six weeks. Temporary lane closures may occur in several locations along Evergreen Mills Road and Watson Road to safely install the devices. 

 Several intersection improvement projects on Evergreen Mills Road are also in process, or are scheduled to begin this spring:

  • Next month, work to improve the Shreve Mill Road and Evergreen Mills Road intersection will begin on Shreve Mill Road with the construction a right turn lane onto northbound Evergreen Mills Road. Following completion of the right turn lane, the contractor will begin work on southbound Evergreen Mills Road to construct a left turn lane onto Shreve Mill Road.
  • The safety audit also identified the realignment of Watson Road with Reservoir Road as a safety improvement; the Evergreen Mills Road Realignment project is underway to realign this intersection.
  • A Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) intersection improvement project, Woods Road Phase II, is under construction on Evergreen Mills Road. Phase II adds turn lanes at the intersection of Woods Road and Evergreen Mills Road.
