Simon’s Run

Simon's Run

Location: Lynchburg, VA  Project Type: Roadways

Simon’s Run, a new road built by Compson Development, is now open to traffic. This thoroughfare creates a direct connection between the Wards Crossing West shopping center in the City of Lynchburg and nearby Leesville Road in Campbell County.

The two-lane Simons Run was developed as an alternate route into the shopping center in hopes of drawing cars away from the Vista Acres neighborhood. Officials hope it will prove a more attractive shortcut for drivers seeking to get from the Leesville area to Wards Ferry Road and beyond.

Hurt & Proffitt, Inc. provided a number of services, including surveying, aerial mapping, site assessment, environmental and construction permitting, road design, construction administration, soil and materials testing, and pavement design.

“Hurt & Proffitt did an outstanding job for us. They responded quickly to any issues that arose and were willing to do whatever it took to keep the project on schedule. Their ability to effectively communicate and their dedication to excellent service was apparent,” said Brian Beaulieu, Construction Manager for Compson Development.

As a part of additional phases, Compson Development anticipates a state of the art movie theater to be added to the shopping center. Future plans also include an additional extension of Simons Run to Airport Road.
