The Virginia Department of Transportation has announced that its plans to place a Restricted Crossing U-Turn at the intersection of Route 17 and Woods Cross Roads is still on the schedule. The project is currently planned for the fall of 2026. But for now, there is still no approved design as VDOT is still working on that part of the project. They say that when it is available, it will be presented to the public, and then the public will have an opportunity to comment on the plan. It comes in at a current cost estimate of $4.9 million, which will be funded through the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program.
