[ARCHIVED] Installation of Center Line Rumble Strips on Sandy Hook Road (Rt. 522) to Occur June 21st & 22nd

Centerline Rumble Strips - Sandy Hook Rd - June 21-22

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is scheduled to begin installing center line rumble strips on Sandy Hook Road (Route 522) in Goochland County on Wednesday, June 21st to enhance safety.

The primary purpose of the rumble strips is to help prevent roadway departure crashes.  Rumble strips create noise and vibration that alert drivers to correct their direction and can reduce head-on crossover and/or run-off crashes significantly.
