Expect lane closures for Henrico road safety improvement projects

The intersection of East Parham and Shrader Roads is one of six receiving a number of safety improvements thanks to a federal grant.

A series of safety improvements at East Parham and Shrader Roads will result in lane closures for two to four weeks, beginning Monday, February 29th, the County of Henrico said Wednesday in a news release.

The Henrico County Department of Public Works will be working in the intersection’s southwestern corner, across Shrader from Henrico’s Public Safety Building. The right eastbound lane of Parham and the adjoining right southbound lane of Shrader will be closed during construction.

As part of the improvement project, crews will remove traffic-signal poles from medians, increase turning radiuses, shift traffic-signal poles away from the road and provide 1,600 feet of sidewalk, a crosswalk and other pedestrian features.

The project is one of six underway or planned to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians at key intersections. Work has already begun at Darbytown Road and Laburnum Avenue and at Parham’s intersections with Villa Park Drive, Woodman Road, and Ackley Avenue.

Improvements to Parham and Three Chopt Road will begin once the other projects along Parham have been completed. The series of projects, which require lane closures during work hours or throughout construction, started in September and are expected to be completed by late summer.

The $669,000 project is supported with federal Highway Safety Improvement Program funds.
