Each month, HRTPO staff highlights a project that is currently being implemented within the Hampton Roads region. This month, staff is highlighting the Skiffes Creek Connector project in James City County.
The project will provide strategic connectivity by constructing a connector road between Pocahontas Trail (Route 60) and Merrimac Trail (Route 143) and also includes the following:
The project improvements are anticipated to improve safety, emergency evacuation, and enhance the movement of goods along the two primary roadways and are thereby critical to the regional transportation system.
The total cost estimate of the project is approximately $40.6 million, and as of June 2022, a total of $18.8 million has been expended on the project. The project began over 10 years ago with project design and construction is currently underway. The roadway is scheduled to open to the public by the end of the year.
