VDOT SEEKS COMMENTS ON STUDY TO IMPROVE SECTION OF WILLIAMSON ROAD IN ROANOKE
Comments will be received June 6 through 20 via online survey

SALEM – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in partnership with the City of Roanoke invites residents and travelers to provide input on a transportation study to address safety, bicycle, pedestrian and transit needs along the section of Williamson Road (Route 11) between Orange Avenue (Route 460) and Hershberger Road (Route 101) in Roanoke.

 The study will analyze the operational and safety issues. Public comments on the study will be accepted through an online survey June 6 - 20, 2022. Information about the study and the online survey can be found on the VAProjectPipeline.org website or by using the direct link at https://metroquestsurvey.com/fb6j6q.

Community input received through this survey will help further refine and finalize potential improvements. The study partners may consider the recommendations for possible advancement through future local, regional, state and federal transportation funding programs.

This study is being conducted as part of a new program, Project Pipeline, created by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB). Project Pipeline is a performance-based planning program to identify cost-effective solutions to multimodal transportation needs in Virginia. Through this planning process, projects and solutions may be considered for funding through programs including Smart Scale, revenue sharing, interstate funding, and others.

Project Pipeline is led by Virginia’s Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI), in collaboration with VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). The final plan will provide a multimodal investment strategy that can be used to seek and secure funding.
