Are you in favor of the Millwood Avenue proposed improvements?
The City is considering several options for improving traffic flow on Millwood Avenue between I-81 and Apple Blossom Drive. VDOT is also planning improvements to the bridge over I-81 and into Frederick County.
The City’s project (west of the I-81 overpass) consists of the following primary components (also illustrated in the above graphic, click to enlarge):
- Remove the traffic signal at Millwood/Mall Blvd and eliminate left turns at this intersection. Mall Blvd will become a “right in-right out” only condition at this location.
- Create double left turn lanes for westbound Millwood turning onto Apple Blossom Drive.
- Create a left turn lane for westbound Millwood to turn into the Vaden property (former Perkins Restaurant and Best Western Hotel).
- Extend the right turn lane for eastbound Millwood turning onto southbound I-81. This will be a free-flowing lane that will not be controlled by a traffic signal.
