ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Thursday evening, the City of Lynchburg will host a virtual public hearing on the US 501 and US 221 Intersection Improvement Project.

According to the City, the proposed improvements will alleviate existing traffic congestions and delay, improve public safety and accommodate anticipated traffic increases as growth continues to expand in the surrounding area.

This type of hearing is held once plans are completed to a stage that all right-of-way limits/lines (including easements), storm water management basins, noise wall locations, retaining wall locations and construction limits, and major design features are delineated and identified clearly within the parameters of the information known to date. Existing property lines, property owners, buildings, and other topographical data allow easy identification of impacts to properties. Alternate proposals on major design features may be presented.
