VDOT TO HOLD HEARING ON PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENT PROJECT ON ROUTE 221 IN FLOYD

SALEM — On Wednesday, February 21, from 5 to 7 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a design public hearing for a project to make pedestrian improvements at Route 221’s intersection with Route 8 in the Town of Floyd.

The hearing will be held at the Floyd County Administrative Offices located 120 West Oxford Street in Floyd.

The project involves upgrading the two existing crosswalks on Route 8, adding two new crosswalks on Route 221, and installing two sets of flashing beacons at the existing crosswalks to alert drivers to pedestrians.

The public hearing is being held to provide an opportunity for citizens or organizations to give input on the project and will be held in an “open-house” format. VDOT representatives will be present to discuss the project and answer questions.

Comments about the project may be submitted at the hearing or until March 3, 2018, by mail to Mr. Jason Patrick, Project Manager, VDOT – Christiansburg Residency, 105 Cambria Street, Christiansburg, VA 24073.

Comments also can be emailed to jason.patrick@vdot.virginia.gov. Please reference “Route 221 Pedestrian Improvements - Floyd” in the subject heading.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact Jason Patrick at 540-381-7201, 800-367-7623, TTY/TDD 711.
