VDOT is studying ways to improve safety and operations in and around the town of Halifax.

The study includes U.S. 501 (Main Street/Halifax Road) from L.P. Bailey Highway to Greens Folly Road, Bethel Road from Howard P Anderson Road to L.P. Bailey Highway, Mountain Road from Sinai Road to Main Street, Sinai Road, and Greens Folly Road from Sinai Road to Halifax Road.

The purpose of this study is to identify and develop potential transportation improvements within the study area. The study will investigate traffic patterns, bicycle/pedestrian accommodations, existing plans and community needs when developing recommendations.

The study area includes major corridors that feed into US 501 in the Town of Halifax. The project is bound by Howard P Anderson Road to the northeast, Greens Folly Road to the south, and Sinai Road to the west.

Together, the study area corridors are 8.3 miles in length.
