State Agencies Invite Public Feedback On I-81 Corridor Improvement Plan

 
Staunton, VA (June 5, 2018) - The first series of meetings will be focused on identifying specific issues along the corridor to be addressed, with focus on crash frequency, crash severity, hours of delay and incidents that close interstate travel lanes for time periods longer than one hour. Meeting attendees will be able to place color-coded stickers to highlight areas of concern on interactive project boards. A preview of these and other meeting documents are now available for viewing on the study website: www.VA81corridor.org.

The meetings will begin with a brief presentation at 4 p.m. followed by an open house format through 7 p.m., which will allow attendees to speak one-on-one with study team members, ask questions, provide written comments and use the interactive project boards available to identify specific areas of concern.

The study team will hold two more series of meetings along the corridor with additional opportunities for formal public comments to be received. The second series of meetings will focus on targeted solutions and potential revenue sources and the final series will cover recommended packages of improvements.
