The Town, EDA, and County of Warren have partnered on the design and construction of the extension of Main Street through the Avtex/Royal Phoenix site. The 0.75 mile road extension will connect the development of the Avtex site to Downtown Front Royal.
In addition, the extension of Main Street will improve local traffic access on the west side of Town. A traffic analysis has been performed to identify opportunities to minimize traffic impact to the adjacent neighborhoods. These measures will be implemented as the site develops and traffic volumes increase.
Phase 1 of the extension is currently under construction and will be completed in Spring of 2019. It is being partly funded by an Economic Development grant through VDOT which will cover $650,000 of the cost.
