The Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) approved a VDOT contract totaling $10.2 million to Branscome Inc. of Williamsburg, to relieve congestion on Longhill Road in James City County.
The project will expand the road from two lanes to a four-lane divided highway from just east of Williamsburg West Drive to just west of the Olde Towne Road/Devon Road intersection in VDOT’s Hampton Roads District. The outside lanes will include extra width to accommodate cyclists. A 10-foot multi-use path will also be constructed as part of the project. Completion is expected in fall 2021.
