SR-630 US-1 Intersection

STATE ROUTE 630 & US-1

DESCRIPTION

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.
