$14 million approved for Roads

The bond referendum for roads provided $14 million for improvements to a 1.9-mile section of Richmond-Henrico Turnpike, near Richmond Raceway.

With construction set to start in spring 2023, the road will be widened to four lanes — from two lanes currently — between East Laburnum Avenue and the railroad crossing that’s north of Azalea Avenue, near the Chickahominy River crossing.

The $41 million project also is being supported with state and federal transportation funds.

In addition to widening the pavement, the project will provide a divided road with a multiuse trail for bicyclists and pedestrians on one side and a sidewalk on the other. The improvements are designed to improve safety and capacity as well as promote economic development in the area.
