A Virginia Department of Transportation project at the intersection of U.S. 58 and Carver Road aims to increase the sight lines at the intersection, according to VDOT Resident Engineer Lisa Hughes.
A Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project at the intersection of U.S. 58 and Carver Road plans to make the intersection safer, according to VDOT Resident Engineer Lisa Hughes.
The project already has begun, Hughes said, and is scheduled to be completed in early November. APAC Atlantic of Greensboro, N.C., is the contractor on the project, which has a budget of $2,516,269. A large portion of that comes from VDOT’s Highway Safety Improvement Program, Hughes added.
The project will raise the grade of the westbound lane of U.S. 58, Hughes said, to improve sight lines at the intersection. The project will span approximately three-tenths of a mile.
“First we’ll be widening the shoulder of the eastbound lane, and we’ll just have one lane closed in each direction while we’re doing that,†Hughes said. Eventually, she said, a stretch of the westbound lanes will be shut down completely in order to raise its grade, and both eastbound and westbound traffic will pass through the eastbound lanes.
There have been a number of accidents at the intersection, Hughes said, including at least one fatality.
Hughes said the majority of the multiple-vehicle accidents at the intersection are angled â€" or “T-bone†accidents â€" which can be quite severe.
“We looked at several options,†she said. “A lot of people have asked us to put a signal up there. We did do a signal study, and it met some of the (metrics) that we use to determine if an intersection is a good fit for a signal, but we still have that sight distance issue.â€
Because of the poor sight lines leading up to the intersection in the westbound lanes, Hughes said, there was some concern that installing a signal light could cause rear-end collisions.
Ultimately, she said, raising the grade to eliminate visibility problems was the best option.
In addition to crash histories, public input plays a role in helping VDOT determine where to undertake safety projects, Hughes said.
“It helps us identify hazardous locations,†she said. “We were aware of the accident history here at Carver Road, certainly, but the public input does help you understand that (the project) is important to the community.â€

Any snow that fell Thursday night “should clean up easily,†said Lisa Price Hughes, resident administrator at the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) office in Bassett Forks.
Lingering moisture on roads is what she is worried out.
Ice on roads could linger well into the day today due to the cold, Hughes said.

That is more likely to occur along lesser traveled routes, said Lisa Price Hughes, resident administrator at VDOT’s office in Bassett Forks.
In Henry and Patrick counties, VDOT crews on Thursday plowed all primary roads and about 90 percent of secondary roads, Hughes said.
After they were plowed and temperatures reached the 40s, “most primary roads actually are dry,†she said, although some secondary roads still might be “a little slushy ... in spots here and there.â€

Lisa Price Hughes, chief administrator at VDOT’s regional office in Bassett Forks, said crews planned to finish getting snow and ice removal equipment out of the shed on Friday. Salt, sand and brine (saltwater) supplies are fully stocked, she said.
When wintry weather is forecast, VDOT tries to coat main roads with brine 24 to 48 hours ahead of the storm, Hughes said. “It helps keep snow and ice from bonding to the pavement,†she said.
In Henry and Patrick counties, VDOT focuses its attention first on primary roads â€" those numbered 600 and below â€" since they are the most heavily traveled, Hughes said. Examples of those highways include U.S. 220, U.S. 58 and Virginia 57.
Secondary roads, numbered 600 and above, are treated after primary roads are in the best possible shape, followed by residential streets, Hughes said.
“Our goal is to have all roads passable within 48 hours after the (winter) storm stops,†she said.

As a result, when traveling, “be careful ... every morning until all of this melts†and is gone, said Lisa Price Hughes, resident engineer at VDOT’s regional office in Bassett Forks.
