Construction is not what we do…it's who we are.

The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) awarded three contracts worth approximately $20.3 million for major infrastructure improvements in the Lynchburg District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

An $8.7 million contract was awarded to W.C. English, Inc. of Lynchburg to reconstruct Odd Fellows Road from Mayflower Drive to Business Route 29 (Lynchburg Expressway), to build a two-lane road with a two-way turn lane in the center.

The Odd Fellows Road Interchange and Improvement Project will also replace a bridge over the railroad and include the construction of a roundaboutat the intersection of Odd Fellows Road and Albert Lankford Road/Murray Place. This is the second and final phase of the project that’s funded through SMART SCALE. The project is supposed to be completed by late fall 2019. The CTB also awarded two contracts worth around $11.6 million to pave multiple routes in four of our counties. A $5.1 million contract was awarded to Boxley Materials Company to pave in Campbell and Appomattox Counties and a $6.5 million contract was awarded to S.L. Williamson Company, Inc. for paving in Amherst and Nelson Counties.

The paving is set to be completed in the 2018 paving season, along with multiple other planned paving projects.
