The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is seeking public input for a portion of U.S. 41 (Franklin Turnpike).
The targeted area lies between Orphanage Road and north of Hunting Hills Road in Pittsylvania County.
VDOT is studying the safety and operational issues that have been identified along that portion of Franklin Turnpike, with a focus on adding safety improvements and enhanced bicycle, pedestrian and transit access. The recommendations resulting from this study may be developed for SMART SCALE and other funding mechanisms.
The project has three phases, with the first and second including the public survey. During the first half of 2024, VDOT will develop and refine preferred alternatives and prepare cost estimates.
