The Route 17 (Carrollton Boulevard) at Route 258 (Brewers Neck Boulevard) Capacity Improvements project in Isle of Wight County encompasses traffic signalization improvements, roadway elevation adjustment for improved drainage and intersection paving, along with development of new turn lanes and through lanes.

Construction began in spring 2021 and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.

Roadway Improvements

This project includes the addition of a single southbound left-turn lane from Route 17 south into the James River Crossings development and a second northbound left-turn lane from northbound Route 17 onto Route 258 west. As well as, one new through lane on Route 258 east entering the James River Crossings development. Route 258 east will continue to have dual left turn lanes onto northbound Route 17 upon project completion. The James River Crossings development will be installing the 4th left of the intersection.

Traffic Impacts

Throughout the duration of the project, motorists can expect daily, alternating, single-lane and shoulder closures on Route 17 and Route 258 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Night work is also permitted when required. All construction work is dependent upon weather conditions.


The primary purpose of this project is to improve capacity and enhance overall level-of-service conditions now and into the future based on existing and anticipated future traffic volumes. The operational enhancements to this intersection of two regionally significant routes will also preserve and/or protect the ability of the Route 17 corridor to safely and efficiently sustain the mobility people and goods in the Hampton Roads Region.

Major Milestones 

Design began in 2019, followed by right-of-way acquisition in 2020. The $3.25 million construction contract was awarded to Henry S. Branscome, LLC on February 25, 2021. Construction started in May 2021.
