Board approves VDOT road improvement plan

The Mathews County Board of Supervisors moved quickly through its agenda during Tuesday’s meeting, approving several requests for action.

After a brief public hearing during which no one spoke either for or against the matter, the board unanimously approved the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Six Year Improvement Plan for secondary roads in the county.

Saluda Residency Administrator Joyce McGowan said that current actual construction dollars in the budget for improvements to secondary roads only come to $29,890, with the rest of the $180,608 budget composed of projected funds expected to be added over the next five or six years.

She said the paving priority for Mathews continues to be Route 643, Haven Beach Road, with replacement of a cross pipe under the road included, all of which is projected to cost around $600,000. The county has $304,000 saved for the project, she said, with $295,477 still needed, so she put the entire $29,890 in that account.
