Participate in I-95 Improvement Study

Posted:

The public is invited to provide feedback for an upcoming study of Virginia’s 179-mile I-95 corridor. Several meetings will be held to provide information about the study and encourage feedback.

 

The Commonwealth Transportation Board will lead the Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment, the Virginia Department of Transportation and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation in creating an I-95 Corridor Plan, which will identify key problem areas and potential solutions.

 

The first series of meetings and online information will be focused on identifying issues along the corridor to be addressed, including crash frequency, crash severity, delay, and incidents that close interstate travel lanes for time periods longer than one hour.

 

The meetings will begin with a brief presentation followed by an open house format, which will allow attendees to speak one-on-one with study team members, ask questions, provide written comments, access online materials, and identify specific areas of concern on project boards.

Comments can be submitted at the meetings or via email to VA95corridorplan@vdot.virginia.gov. The first comment period will end August 21, 2019. Additional comment opportunities will be available throughout the study period.

 

The study team also has developed a map-based online engagement tool as an option for corridor users who may not be able to attend the meetings. The tool will ask users to respond to a series of questions about how they travel the corridor, what types of improvements would benefit them, and to identify areas of concern.
