Intersection improvements at Independence and N. Franklin to begin Monday, June 12

In an effort to improve traffic flow and walkability, the Town of Christiansburg is extending turn lane lengths at the intersection of Independence Boulevard and North Franklin Street and adding pedestrian accommodations. 

Contractors plan to begin work at the intersection during the week of June 12. In an effort to avoid impacting school traffic, construction is expected to be substantially complete by late summer. During this time, there will be some lane closures, but the Town will make every effort to minimize disruption, noise and dust. 

While the project ultimately aims to assist motorists in getting through the intersection quicker, crews will also install storm drain in the area and will need to reconfigure island locations.

Please drive carefully through the work zone.
