Brooke Road Safety Improvements



Brooke Road Temporary Partial Road Closing


Brooke Road Detour Plan Map 


The date for reopening Brooke Road to through traffic near Stagecoach Road has changed. The closure is being extended to late October. Brooke Road was closed to through traffic on September 17, 2018. Record-setting rainfalls impacted the progress of construction and led to a rescheduled potential July opening.

The delay to October is due to two unexpected factors discovered during construction. First, materials being used in the wetlands area were not performing satisfactorily. County staff, VDOT and the contractor had to work together to find a substitute. Then submit and receive VDOT approvals. Second, it was determined the plan for relocating Dominion lines needed to change, requiring the need to obtain additional utility easements.


From 2.44 miles south of Eskimo Hill Road (SR-628) to 0.64 mile south of Eskimo Hill Road - Project Length = 1.8 Miles 
Project is part of the Youth Driver Task Force (YDTF) recommendations and is included in the 2008 Transportation Bond Referendum.  Cost is @ $5.2 M.  Improvements project will reconstruct Brooke Road to meet Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) 3R standards (resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation).  Improvements include horizontal and vertical realignment, typical section improvements (lane width, shoulder width, and roadside features), and sight distance improvements.  The roadway typical section will include two standard 11’ lanes with adjacent 6’ shoulders in each direction, and roadside ditches to convey local drainage.  Stormwater management in accordance with County and VDOT standards will be provided using traditional stormwater management basins along the length of the project.
