CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Today, the Chesterfield County Transportation Department launched its new website, Streamline 360/288 Improvements, dedicated to the multi-year, phased plan of multiple roadway projects along Route 360 and Route 288 in the southwestern part of the county. When complete, these nine projects will allow for safer, faster and more efficient travel along the corridor.
Projects included in the Streamline 360/288 Improvements are located along Route 360, also known as Hull Street Road, between the Route 288 interchange and Winterpock Road, and Route 288 between Genito Road and the Commonwealth Centre Parkway interchange. The website features information about all nine planned projects, including why each project is needed and the benefit each project will provide to motorists.
The Route 360/288 corridors are heavily traveled, and motorists can experience heavy delays, long back-ups, slow travel speeds and associated crashes during peak travel times. A study by the Virginia Department of Transportation identified a series of solutions to address operational and safety deficiencies within the corridors. Traffic volumes are projected to increase within the corridors as development continues to grow in southwest Chesterfield. Streamline 360/288 Improvements will mitigate these impacts and improve travel in this area.
Construction of the first two projects is expected to begin in 2021. The initial project slated to begin in 2021 consists of improvements to the Route 288 southbound to Route 360 westbound off-ramp and park-and-ride lot at the Chesterfield Career and Technical Center located at Route 360 and Chital Drive 288 SB to 360 WB.
In 2022, construction will begin on the Bailey Bridge Connector project, a new connector road and pedestrian and bike path between Bailey Bridge Road and Brad McNeer Parkway.
Information on the remaining projects and their status can be found at www.streamlinechesterfield.com.
Streamline 360/288 Improvements is a phased initiative to be implemented by Chesterfield County, in collaboration with Virginia Department of Transportation and the Richmond Regional Transportation Planning Organization.
