Chesterfield breaks ground on Nash Road Extension

It’s become an all-too-common scene during central Chesterfield’s peak morning commuting hours: a long line of motorists queueing along northbound Beach Road, waiting for a green light and an opportunity to turn left onto Route 10.

Now relief is on the way.

Five years after the initial community meeting on the Nash Road Extension, the county’s selected contractor has begun construction on a $25 million project that will alleviate congestion at that heavily traveled intersection by providing much-needed redundancy in the area’s transportation network. 

“This road will be located in the Dale District, but many people from the Matoaca District come up Nash Road to get to Route 10. I’ve talked to a lot of them and they can’t wait for this project to come out of the ground,” said Kevin Carroll, chair of the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors, during a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday afternoon. “It’s going to offer tremendous relief to those commuting in the morning.” 

In addition to a new two-lane roadway, the project also includes construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Nash and Beach roads and a multi-span bridge over Swift Creek, as well as a new traffic signal and turn lanes at the Nash Road Extension’s intersection with Route 10.    

As part of Chesterfield’s fiscal year 2018 capital improvement plan, the board authorized staff to proceed with design and right-of-way acquisition for the project.

That started the process of meeting with the community and “trying to get this project where it is today,” said Jesse Smith, deputy county administrator for community development and formerly director of the county’s Transportation department.

“The residents have really shaped this project so we appreciate their support and patience,” he added.

Dale District Supervisor Jim Holland noted that county leaders considered many different options -- including the possibility of widening Beach Road – before settling on the plan to extend Nash Road as an alternate access to Route 10.

“We also thought about doing nothing, but doing nothing is not an option when you’re on a journey toward excellence,” Holland said.

At its August meeting, the Board of Supervisors awarded a $25 million construction contract to Wagman Heavy Civil Inc. for the Nash Road Extension. It’s the Pennsylvania-based company’s first project in Chesterfield. 

Construction began this week and is scheduled for completion in spring 2026.
