Forest scheduled to get three new traffic lights - 04/15/07 10:12 PM

This fall, three new traffic lights are scheduled for installation by VDOT. The location of the new lights are: - Rte 221 between the future RE/MAX and Bank of the James - The intersection of Perrowville and Hooper Road (just before Jefferson Forest High School) - The intersection of Thomas Jefferson Road and Everett Road Another (0 comments)
