Finally after many years of advocating for this project,
The first phase of the Versailles Road Corridor Improvement Project is under way, making the corridor much safer for the many pedestrians who use it, Mayor Linda Gorton said today. The work, between Parkers Mill and Mason Headley roads, will include:
Wider sidewalks that will be away from the edge of the road
Retaining walls next to the Hillcrest Cemetery property and the backside of Fair Oaks Drive
A grass median between Village Drive and Mason Headley Road.
Most of the Phase I work is expected to be completed by early February. Final roadway resurfacing is expected to be done later in the spring. The project will require lane closures, but two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction throughout construction.
