The SPDC provided assistance to Brunswick County on a Smart Scale grant application for improvements to the intersection of US 58/Robinson Ferry Road.  The project was selected for funding in the amount of $4,260,602 by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in June of 2021.  The intersection will be reconfigured into a Restricted Crossing U-Turn (RCUT).  It will be reconfigured to allow left-turns from eastboard and westbound traffic on US 58 and to permit right turns in and out of the approaches from Robinson Ferry Road and Grandy Road.  The existing left-turn lanes will be extended to reflect current standards.  The existing crossovers located just east and west of the subject intersection will be reconfigured into a U-turn area with a turn lane.  These improvements are expected to address the current safety needs at this interestion, as RCUT's can reduce up to 45% of all crash types in rural areas.  Based on the VDOT Six-Year Improvement Program, this project is anticipated to begin during FY26.
