Parking on Guinea Road
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recently evaluated the south side of Guinea Road from the shopping center entrance to Sandy Lewis Drive to determine if any parking restrictions were warranted based on current program practices. As a result of this review, No Parking signs were installed east and west of the marked crosswalk across Guinea Road at Zion Drive to assist in maintaining an open sight line for drivers and pedestrians, in addition to preventing drivers from parking within the flow line of a roadway drainage area. This No Parking Zone extends from approximately 100 feet west of the Zion Drive intersection eastward to the bowling alley entrance. A No Parking Zone is also being implemented on the east side of Sandy Lewis Drive for approximately 125 feet for crosswalk visibility as well.
