Study Details

The Staples Mill Road (Route 33) Small Area Plan (the study) will evaluate automobile, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian conditions along Staples Mill Road and other key streets near the Staples Mill Road Amtrak Station in Henrico County. The study will assess future travel projections, development patterns, and a concept developed by Henrico County and Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) for transit-oriented development surrounding the Amtrak Station.

The study vision is for Staples Mill Road to develop as a Complete Street that supports development and provides safe and comfortable travel for all uses and users of the roadway. It will generate a range of multimodal solutions to address the study goals and objectives and test their application and relevance through community input.
