This project creates a modified Restricted Crossing U-turn (RCUT) at the intersection of Pear Street and Erickson Avenue to improve safety and operations at this intersection. 3 out of 4 left turns, as well as the through movements on the minor approaches, are redirected to signalized U-turns. More information about this type of intersection can be found on the VDOT webpage. Marked crosswalks will be provided at the Pear Street intersection, including a pedestrian refuge and enhanced crosswalk to cross Erickson Avenue.
