Elkton 2020 Transportation Plan
Welcome to VDOT's "Elkton 2020 Transportation Plan" study web site. The study was conducted to provide long term needs assessment for the town's thoroughfare highway system. The boundaries of the study are the corporate limits of the Town of Elkton. The following roadway segments were evaluated:
- Spotswood Trail from West Corporate Limits to East Corporate Limits
- East Side Highway from South Corporate Limits to Spotswood Trail
- Stuart Avenue from Spotswood Trail North Corporate Limits
- Furnace Road from North Road to East Corporate Limits
- North Road from Spotswood Avenue to East Corporate Limits
- Spotswood Avenue from North Road to Spotswood Trail
Data collected for the study of the town includes:
- Traffic counts conducted in August 2000
- Accident report information from 1996 through 1998
- VDOT database of roadway geometric conditions (dimensions)
- Review of tourism and goods movement issues in the town
The above information was analyzed to identify Elkton's 2020 transportation needs based upon highway capacity, geometry, and safety as well as other concerns raised by local officials and citizens. A public meeting was held February 12, 2002 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the Elkton Municipal Building, 173 West Spotswood Avenue to present the study findings and seek input on the recommendations proposed for future improvements. The Elkton 2020 Transportation Plan was adopted by the Town on June 17, 2002.
