Accomack – VDOT is set to begin a roundabout project to improve traffic flow and intersection capacity in the town of Tasley.

Construction is scheduled to start the week of August 12.

The roundabout will be located at the intersections of Tasley Road (Business Route 13), Greenbush Road (Route 316), and Fairgrounds Road (Route 126) in Accomack County. The project is being funded by a combination of state and federal funds.

This will be the first roundabout on the Eastern Shore.

During construction, the intersection will be closed to traffic. Signed detours will be in place. Motorists should anticipate minor delays.

The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2013.
