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.

A central mix concrete plant was set up on the southeast quadrant of the interchange between US-60 and VA-288. This will be utilized to produce the concrete for the VA-288 roadway between VA-76 Powhite Parkway and the Chesterfield-Powhatan county line.
