Longfield Road will be detour during bridge construction

The Westmoreland Supervisors met this Monday and adopted the secondary road improvements Six Year Plan. The action followed a VDOT presentation and an advertised public hearing.

Topping the list of secondary county roadways scheduled for improvement during the next six years is reconstruction of State Route 631/Longfield Road in Washington Magisterial District. The improvements will cost $2,504,630 and the work

will be completed by December 31, 2016, according to the adopted Plan. Longfield Road will become the designated detour when the Mattox Creek and Tides Mill bridges are replaced on State Route 205, VDOT Residency Administrator David Brown explained.

Second from the top of the list is a smaller project on the opposite end of the county. Reconstruction and surface treatment of the non-hard surfaced road known as Route 760/Lowe Drive and situated in the Cople Magisterial District is at this time scheduled for completion as quickly as May 31, 2012 at a cost of $212,453.

The old Prospect Bridge that crosses Nomini Creeek on State Route 621 will be replaced with a new bridge in the exact same location as the existing deteriorating bridge. That portion of Route 621 will be closed during the construction period that is scheduled to run from October 9, 2012 until April 31, 2014. The project will cost $5,247,534.

Improvements costing $379,893 will be made to Route 755/Nelson Street in Montross Magisterial District as part of the Department’s unpaved rural rustic roads program. Nelson Street is in immediate proximity to Westmoreland County Industrial Park and work will be completed in June 2012.

After years of effort, Route 668/Taylor Town Road made the cut and is included in the Six Year Secondary Road Improvements Plan. The project will be on hold until 2018 and the reconstruction and surface treatment of that non-hard surfaced road will cost an estimated $402,626. Taylor Town Road is in Montross Magisterial District.

Other roads that made the list will be funded through a revenue sharing program that requires the locality to provide half of those projects’ funding. The revenue sharing listings include the $152,000 resurfacing project that begins this month on Westmoreland Drive/Route 778 with a scheduled completion date of August 30, 2012 and the rural addition/reconstruction project of Mattox Avenue/Route 1312 that will be completed between September and November of this year at a cost of $10,224. $164,000 will be expended to reconstruct Placid Point Road between September 25 and November 30, 2012.
