Halifax Count supes, VDOT to review roads plan / November 11, 2013
The Halifax County Board of Supervisors will hold a meeting on Thursday, Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor conference room of the Mary Bethune Complex.

Supervisors will gather with members of the Virginia Department of Transportation to review the current Six Year Transportation Plan and to consider possible changes.

Supervisors will also review requirements for prioritizing roads for inclusion in the county’s unpaved road improvement plan. Board members will also receive comments from citizens about the condition of county roads.

Supervisors also will consider suggestions from the local Transportation Safety Commission and the Route 501 Coalition for upgrading Route 501 North, which ED-1 Supervisor J. T. Davis has termed “a very dangerous highway.”

Following the joint session with VDOT representatives, the Board’s Buildings and Grounds Committee will hold a special call meeting to discuss legal issues and a possible award of a public contract.
