Greenview Drive widening to begin soon in Lynchburg

By  | 

LYNCHBURG, Va. Work to reconstruct a busy crossroads is getting underway in Lynchburg.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is widening the intersection of Greenview Drive and Leesville Road.

When the project is finished next summer, there will be two extra lanes for through traffic on Greenview.

Separate lanes will also be added for vehicles making left and right turns.

Engineers hope the changes will reduce backups on Greenview.

VDOT has already lowered the speed limit in the work zone and drivers will see large equipment in the area in a few weeks.
