The Virginia Department of Transportation, together with Kimley-Horn, a planning, design, and engineering consulting firm, have revealed to the public proposed plans for modifying several intersections along the U.S. Routes 29 and 460 corridor in Campbell and Appomattox counties.

VDOT contracted Kimley-Horn to conduct studies of the highways and develop proposals to improve safety and traffic flow at intersections of these major transportation arteries in Appomattox, Campbell, and Pittsylvania counties.

Christopher Winstead, District Engineer for VDOT in the Lynchburg District, explained the process and purpose of the Routes 29/460 Arterial Management Plan. “We’ve studied the corridor; we’ve looked at what are ways to improve safety and capacity. We have some good ideas and plans. An important part of the process is getting input from the public.”

In order to get that input, VDOT and Kimley-Horn held an open house for the public on Oct. 29 at the VDOT district offices on Campbell Avenue in Lynchburg. Representatives of both agencies were on hand to answer questions and collect feedback from area residents.

A second open house is scheduled for Nov. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m., at the VDOT Chatham Residency offices on Highway 29, just north of Chatham.
