GOV NORTHAM ATTENDS CEREMONY TO WIDEN ROUTE 58 iN PATRICK

The $300 million project strives to create a safer route for those traveling along Lovers Leap Mountain

PATRICK COUNTY, Va. – On Wednesday, Governor Ralph Northam broke ground on a project aiming to widen 7.4 miles of Route 58 in Patrick County and create a four-lane highway between Virginia Beach and Interstate 77.

The $300 million project strives to not only widen Route 58 but also create a safer route for those traveling along the steep angles and winding curves of Lovers Leap Mountain.

At this time, the two-lane section of Route 58 is restricted to tractor-trailers; however, after reconstruction, the restrictions will be removed. Brake check areas and escape ramps for trucks will also be added to the route.
