Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)From VDOT: The Commonwealth Transportation Board has awarded a contract worth approximately $8.4 million to Haymes Brothers Inc. of Chatham, Va., for the second phase of safety improvements along the U.S. 29/460 corridor in Lynchburg. The project will better manage the access for vehicles needing to enter and exit businesses and other properties along the four-lane divided roadway between U.S. 501 (Campbell Avenue) and Poston Street. New auxiliary lanes will be constructed so drivers can accelerate to or decelerate from highway speeds. The new lanes will improve safety along this 1.3-mile section of Richmond Highway by eliminating the speed differentials in the travel lanes. This project in the Lynchburg District is scheduled for completion in November 2017. More detailed information is available at
