Increased Traffic Expected Near Amazon During Holiday Season

Motorists should expect increased traffic in the area around the Amazon Fulfillment Center on Meadowville Technology Parkway beginning Monday, Nov. 20, through the holiday season. The business will begin its peak season staffing ramp-up on Monday, and traffic will increase as the workforce increases. The traffic pattern will be similar to past years and motorists should allow extra time to get through the area during shift changes. Chesterfield County is working closely with Amazon to mitigate the impact on traffic.

Paint Out Pollution

Last month, volunteers spent the day working with Art on Wheels and the James River Association, stencil painting storm drains. The Paint Out Pollution project aims to increase awareness of stormwater pollution and celebrate the native plant and animal species that call the James River home. Local artists created stencils that were used to install art on storm drains at the Chester, LaPrade, Meadowdale and North Courthouse Road libraries. There are a number of different designs between the four locations. Be sure to check them out!
