The Board of Supervisors were happy to be informed of the decision about the planned signal earlier this year due to complaints from residents, particularly those living on St. Paul's Road. Kelly Hannon, Communications Manager for Virginia Department of Transportations Fred: ericksburg District provided some information about need for the traffic light. "This intersections crash history showed an el- evated number of crashes where motorists turn- ing left onto Route 206 were struck by oncoming traffic" Hannon said. "Installing a traffic signal will eliminate the need for motorists turning left onto Route 206 to judge speed and distance of the oncoming traffic, and consequently is intended to reduce the risk of crashes, fatalities and injuries" Hannon said most of the work will occur out- side of travel lanes. "However, lane closures and brief delays are expected when the new traffic signal poles are installed, which will be in the spring 2017. Specific dates, times, and locations for the lane closures will be announced as soon as they are scheduled" Hannon said. On Dec. 6, she said the project contractor has until September 26, 2017 to complete all work connected with this project, though the initial work schedule indicates they are hoping for completion during the summer 2017. Hannon also said the project was awarded in Work by the Virginia Department of Transportation gets underway at the intersection of Routes 216, 206 and 632. conjunction with another project in Caroline down on Dec. 9.
