Enon Road and Route 1 Improvements

Project Description

Project will widen approximately 0.63 miles of Enon Road (RT 753) from 0.02 miles west of the intersection with Beauregard Drive to the intersection with Richmond (US‐1). The project will provide a continuous two‐way left turn lane from the intersection with Beauregard Drive to Stafford Indians Lane and dedicated left‐turn and right‐turn lanes at the intersection with Stafford Indians Lane. The intersection with Porter Lane will also be improved to a 90 degree connection to provide sight distance to current standards. An additional left‐turn lane will be added to US‐1 northbound, and an additional receiving lane will be added to Enon Road to accommodate the dual left turns from Route 1. The project will also add dedicated left, through, and right‐turn lanes for traffic exiting Enon Road onto US‐1. A 5’ concrete sidewalk will also be provided along Enon Road.
