Poplar Road Safety Improvements

Poplar Road 3

III Phases - Phases I & II Completed  March 2016

POPLAR ROAD PHASE III   

From 0.077 miles south of the intersection with Mountain View Road (SR-627) to 0.233 miles south of the intersection with Mountain View Road.  
Project is to reconstruct Poplar Road at the intersection with Cedar Hill Lane to meet current VDOT standards.  Improvements include horizontal and vertical curve re-alignment, typical section improvements (lane width, shoulder width and roadside drainage), and sight distance improvements.  
The roadway typical section includes two 11’ travel lanes with 6’ graded shoulders.  3’ of the graded shoulders will be paved with asphalt concrete.  New ditches will be constructed to convey roadway drainage and stormwater treatment is being handled through the purchase of Nutrient Credits.


A 2008 Transportation Bond Referendum Project. 


UPDATE  June 2018 - To advertise for bids for construction next month - anticipate 4.5 months construction duration

phase I

POPLAR ROAD 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.
