Overview:

The purpose of an Arterial Management Plan is to develop a holistic approach that identifies ways to ensure the safety and preserve the capacity of the Commonwealth’s arterial highway network without wide scale roadway widenings. This Arterial Management Plan has been requested to identify investment recommendations that will help preserve and enhance this key transportation corridor due to the important role it plays in the region as a significant tourism corridor, a key freight corridor serving the Port of Virginia, a vital link within the Commonwealth, and a key facility for coastal evacuation and connections to North Carolina and points south. 

Stakeholders:

Localities involved in the study include City of Emporia, City of Franklin, Greensville County, Isle of Wight County, Southampton County, and the City of Suffolk. In addition to the localities involved, the Port of Virginia, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), and the Crater Planning District Commission are also critical stakeholders of the project.

Lengths and Limits:

The study area is 70.5 miles in length. The study area extends from the Hampton Roads construction boundary at the Greenville/Brunswick corporate limits to the eastern termini at the Suffolk Bypass. The study area includes several limited-access bypass segments at Courtland, Franklin, Emporia and Suffolk that are considered to be improved and therefore will receive limited analysis as part of the study.

Status/Current Activities:

Traffic and crash data collection have been completed. A site field review was conducted to identify safety and geometric deficiencies. Three public meetings were held in March 2018 to inform citizens about the study and seek citizen feedback regarding issues and concerns along the corridor. VDOT is now presenting recommendations on potential improvements to maintain the existing roadway.
