The project makes multiple improvements to South Main Street in the vicinity of the I-81 Exit 243 interchange. The improvements will construct additional turn lanes and associated changes to improve operations at this intersection. Sidewalk will be added along the west side of South Main Street between the existing sidewalk south of the interchange and the existing sidewalk north of the Pleasant Valley Road intersection. Pedestrian signals, ramps, and crosswalks will be installed where appropriate at the intersections with Covenant Drive and with Pleasant Valley Road. Project funded through the VDOT SMART SCALE program.
