VDOT TO CONDUCT SURVEY TO GATHER PUBLIC INPUT ON MARTINSVILLE SOUTHERN CONNECTOR STUDY

RICHMOND, Va. – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will conduct an online survey to gather feedback for the Martinsville Southern Connector Study, a first step toward identifying future improvements to the Route 220 corridor between the North Carolina state line and the U.S. Route 220/58 bypass. The survey will begin on Thursday, Sept. 13.

 The Martinsville Southern Connector Study is an Environmental Impact Statement. It will document transportation needs in the study area, develop a range of reasonable alternatives to address those needs and examine potential environmental impacts of the alternatives before a preferred alternative is identified.

 “Public participation is a crucial element of the Martinsville Southern Connector Study. The survey will allow residents to provide feedback and input on what they feel are the most significant transportation needs within the study area,” said Scott Smizik, VDOT project manager for the Martinsville Southern Connector Study.  

 The survey will be available on the project website for 30 days.

 For more information on the Martinsville Southern Connector Study, to sign up for a monthly newsletter for updates about the study, or to take the survey online, visit www.virginiadot.org/martinsvilleconnector.
