VDOT announced at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisor’s meeting that Cape Charles will be getting a traffic light at the Food Lion intersection. The safety of that entrance has been the subject of safety concerns for many years.
Former Supervisor Granville Hogg has been working this issue for over ten years.
The project will start during the summer of 2020 and will cost $1.9 million.
Other road improvements will be included in the project. Longer turn lanes and rumble strips will be installed. A signal needs analysis last fall determined that a traffic signal would make the intersection safer.
The project is estimated to be completed in the spring of 2021.
