|Route 288 construction, looking south. The section of VA-288 from VA-76 Powhite Parkway to Lucks Lane, opened to traffic in November 2002. Concrete paving is about to begin on the mainline roadways, aggregate base has been placed and a 4 inch layer of asphalt base on top of the aggregate base. The already paved roadways are collector-distributor (C-D) roadways, and the roadways under construction are the mainline roadways.|
