Nellysford – Nelson County, Virginia

If you’ve been traveling Virginia Route 151 north out of Nellysford, you have no doubt noticed the new speed reminder radar unit near the intersection of Rodes Farm Drive and Route 151.

As we told you back in November, the new speed limit began taking effect on the roadway that had a high number of fatal auto accidents in 2007.

The radar signs are a warning to drivers to watch their speed along the new 45 MPH zone.

With the new 45 MPH zone, a continuous stretch of 151 is now 45 MPH from just north of Bland Wade Road all the way south into Nellysford.

Nelson BOS Chairman, Tommy Harvey is now proposing, and has asked VDOT to decrease the speed limit along Route 151 to 45 MPH all the way from Route 250 at Rockfish Gap, south to Nellysford. (See 4th paragraph in linked minutes)

  1. Just got a ticket for going 58mph. Probably won’t go back to Nelson County or Wintergreen anymore. Speed changes a couple of times from 55 to 45 and then back again. Had the cruise control set for 55. Obvious speed trap to generate revenue.
