VDOT COMPLETES STUDY ON THE ROUTE 60 CORRIDOR IN LEXINGTON AND ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has completed the Route 60 Corridor Study Transportation Needs Survey for the Lexington and Rockbridge County area.

VDOT hosted a stakeholder meeting regarding the study on May 21, 2012.

The survey was open from May 7 to June 22, 2012 and was completed by 222 local citizens. It covered the Route 60 Corridor from the intersection of East Nelson Street and Spottswood Drive to the intersection of East Midland Trail to Quarry Lane. Citizens were asked to vote for their top choices of transportation needs and improvements along the Route 60 Corridor identified by VDOT District Planners and could also write in their own ideas.

The study’s goal was to address short term and long term transportation issues associated with the Route 60 Corridor. Along with the survey results, VDOT will consider multiple factors such as community input, traffic operation, future economic projections and existing corridor context when prioritizing improvements along the corridor.

VDOT has also made survey results available at City of Lexington, Rockbridge County and VDOT Lexington Residency offices.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.

VDOT can be followed on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and You Tube. RSS feeds are also available for statewide information. The VDOT webpage is located at www.VirginiaDOT.org.
