With school traffic congestion fast approaching, VDOT is applying a novel engineering technique to one of Hanover County’s most troublesome intersections.
VDOT is bringing what it calls a “Green T” intersection to a severely congested area in front of Hanover High School on U.S. 301. “For this particular area, there was a need to increase safety and address congestion,” said VDOT’s Jessica Cowardin. She says the Green T is a new concept that keeps traffic moving constantly in one direction and improves the turn lane, without the use of a traffic light.
Look for construction on 301 the rest of the week. They plan to have it finished in time for the first day of school, next Tuesday (9/4).
