Poplar Road Safety Improvements

POPLAR ROAD - STATE ROUTE 616 - III Phases:


 
  • PHASE I & II - COMPLETED MARCH 2016

  • PHASE III - Update April 2017: 

    VDOT completed design plans for Phase I of Phase III. Preparing bid documents. NOVEC & Verizon have design plans & are scheduling relocations. Staff is pricing demolition for one structure. 

Poplar Road Phase III & Mountain View Road - Intersection 
From the intersection of Poplar Road and Mountain View Road 0.09 miles north and 0.27 miles south along Poplar Road and 0.1 mile east along Mountain View Road (SR-627) - Project Length = 0.46 miles.  

Poplar Rd Phase 3

The improvements project reconstructs Poplar Road and Mountain View Road to meet VDOT GS-3 standards. Improvements include horizontal and vertical realignment, typical section improvements (lane width, shoulder width, and roadside features), and sight distance improvements.

The roadway typical section includes two standard 12’ lanes with adjacent 8’ shoulders in each direction, and roadside ditches to convey local drainage. Stormwater management in accordance with County and VDOT standards will be provided using traditional stormwater management basins along the length of the project. A 2008 Transportation Bond Referendum Project. 


phase I

Phase I 
Warrenton Road (US-17) to 0.25 mile north of Truslow Road (SR-652) 

Improve roadway width, shoulder width, drainage and safety including two 12’ lanes (one in each direction), graded shoulders, and turn lanes at the intersection with US-17. 

Additional drainage improvements including increased cross culvert capacity, ditches, stormwater management and improved cross slope and elevation.

Poplar Road Phase II 


Improvements from 0.17 mile north of Truslow Road (SR-652) to the Intersection of Cedar Crest Lane (a private lane) - Project Length = 0.6 mile

A 2008 Transportation Bond Referendum Project. The project reconstructed Poplar Road to meet current VDOT standards for a Rural Collector Road (VDOT Standard GS-3 classification). Improvements include horizontal and vertical realignment, typical section improvements (lane width, shoulder width, and roadside features), and sight distance improvements. 

The roadway typical section includes two standard 12’ lanes with adjacent 8’ shoulders (3’ paved) in each direction, and roadside ditches to convey local drainage. Stormwater management in accordance with County and VDOT standards will be provided using LID (low-impact-development) and IMP (integrated- management–practices) facilities.
