MIRR Breaks Ground to Improve Midlothian Turnpike

Midlothian Initiative to Revitalize Rights of Way (MIRR) broke ground today on a landscaping project that promises to bring visual improvements to a stretch of Route 60 in Chesterfield County. Senator John Watkins, Jay Stegmaier, Dan Gecker, Will Davis, Bill Levitt, Ray Birk, Duane Schumaker, Tom Jacobson, and Pete Stith participated in the groundbreaking ceremony. The MIRR Task Force is a sub-committee of the Greater Southport Business Association.

The subcommittee and Chesterfield County have been working with Timmons Group to develop a plan to improve, beautify and revitalize the roadways, medians and rights of way in the Huguenot/Courthouse/Midlothian area. The design plan calls for several phases.

The first phase will enhance the medians along Midlothian Turnpike from Alverser Drive on the west to Johnson Willis Drive on the east. The work will cost approximately $680,000 (including maintenance) and will be paid over five years through a special tax assessment of the area property owners.

A presentation showing the area being planned for improvements, type of landscaping being considered and before/after photos is available for download on the Greater Southport Business Association web site.
