JAMES CITY COUNTY — The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a location public hearing on Wednesday, July 18, to present and receive feedback on the completed Environmental Assessment and retained design options for a proposed roadway connector that would form a local connection between U.S. Route 60 (Pocahontas Trail) and State Route 143 (Merrimac Trail) in James City County.

Location Public Hearing

The purpose of the meeting is to give citizens an opportunity to review and provide input on the findings of the Environmental Assessment, supporting technical documents, the two alternatives retained for analysis, and other project exhibits on display. This meeting will be held in an open house-style format with no formal presentation. VDOT representatives will be available to discuss the project and answer questions.

Citizens may provide oral and written comments at the hearing or submit them by July 28, 2018, to Scott Smizik, VDOT Environmental Division, 1401 E. Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23219 or via email to Scott.Smizik@VDOT.Virginia.gov. Please reference “Skiffes Creek Connector Study Comment” in the subject line.
