The Route 1 & Courthouse Road Intersection Improvement Project will widen approximately 0.65 miles of Route 1 to provide dedicated left-turn lanes onto Courthouse Road and Bells Hill/Hope Road. Route 1 will be improved to a 4-lane, divided roadway with a concrete median separating northbound and southbound traffic. Dedicated left turn lanes will be added to Route 1 at Courthouse Road and the Bells Hill/Hope Road intersection to improve traffic signal function and reduce intersection delays. Eastbound Courthouse Road will be widened to provide a dedicated left-turn, right-turn, and through lane. Westbound Courthouse Road will be re-striped to provide a dedicated left-turn, right-turn, and through lane. An 8 foot sidewalk will also be installed along both sides of Route 1.
