Courthouse Area - US-1 Improvements

SR-630 US-1 Intersection



The US-1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) & Courthouse Road (SR-630) Intersection Improvement Project will widen approximately 0.65 miles of Route 1 to provide dedicated left-turn lanes onto Courthouse Road and Bells Hill (SR-631) / Hope Road (SR-687).  US-1 will be improved to a 4-lane, divided roadway with a concrete median separating northbound and southbound traffic.  Dedicated left-turn lanes will be added to US-1 at Courthouse Road and the Bells Hill/Hope Road intersection to improve traffic signal function and reduce intersection delays.  Eastbound Courthouse Road will be widened to provide a dedicated left-turn, right-turn, and through lane. Westbound Courthouse Road will be re-striped to provide a dedicated left-turn, right-turn, and through lane.  An 8 foot sidewalk will also be installed along both sides of US-1.

UPDATE  February 2020

Right-of-Way Acquisitions still ongoing.  Out of 29 parcels impacted, 16 have accepted the County’s Purchase Offer and so far the County has had to utilize its quick-take powers to condemn another 9 parcels so that utility relocations can begin in Spring 2020. 


  • Anticipate starting utility relocations in fall 2020
  • Anticipate starting construction in spring 2021 and completing construction by winter 2022
