Study Coordination

In February 2018, VDOT started a study, called an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), to evaluate potential transportation improvements along the U.S. Route 220 corridor between the U.S. Route 58/220 Bypass and the North Carolina state line.

VDOT is conducting the study in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration and will be engaging other state and federal agencies throughout its development.

The Coordination Plan (updated May 10, 2018) is a required document that outlines how cooperating agencies, participating agencies, and the public will be informed of and involved in the study.  Additional public or agency coordination may occur outside of the Coordination Plan and the study schedule will be adjusted accordingly.
