Roadwork at the intersection of Route 199 and Brookwood Drive in James City County is now complete.

Crews contracted by VDOT completed the safety and drainage improvements at the intersection nearly a month early, James City County said in a news release.

The $358,000 construction project aims to alleviate congestion during peak traffic times and increase vehicle capacity. The project includes changes to the median on Route 199, signal-head replacement at the intersection and drainage improvements.

The project also coverted the existing right-turn lane from Brookwood Drive onto Route 199 east into a left-turn and through lane. A new right-turn lane was added on Brookwood Drive for those going onto Route 199 east.

The project began March 5 and was scheduled for completion on July 19. The work was done by Henry S. Branscome, LLC.
