Published 5:50 pm Friday, May 27, 2022

Two secondary roads in Surry County are slated for widening sometime during the next six years, according to a draft 2023-28 road improvement plan the Virginia Department of Transportation has proposed.

VDOT has budgeted roughly $2.3 million to widen 0.6 miles of Lebanon Road, just outside Surry’s town limits, and to correct geometric deficiencies in the roadway. Another $2.4 million is budgeted for widening half a mile of Moonlight Road near Surry’s border with Isle of Wight County, as well as improving the road’s ditches and straightening its curves.

There’s also $250,000 set aside for countywide rural additions.
