A traffic signal may be coming to the Tyson Foods Plant in Temperanceville. The plant, located in a narrow stretch of Route 13, is often dangerous with the large volumes of traffic, including tractor trailers, coming in and out frequently.

According to Accomack County Administrator Mike Mason, he mentioned the issue to Tyson and they felt like it was a good idea and suggested they may be able to help fund some of the project.

VDOT’s Chris Isdell felt the project has a much better chance of moving forward with Tyson helping fund it. VDOT has begun to study the area and will recommend once the study is finished what it seems is appropriate for the section.
