The Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment, the Virginia Department of Transportation and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation are developing a plan to study the entire length of the Interstate 81 corridor in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
As directed in Senate Bill 971 (now 2018 Acts of Assembly Chapter 743), the study team will identify targeted improvement along I-81 and potential revenue sources that could be dedicated to improvements. SB 971 was introduced by Senators Mark Obenshain and Bill Carrico, and supported by Delegate Steve Landes with budget language in the House of Delegates budget bill.
Feedback provided by members of communities, industries and other stakeholders will be considered as team members study the corridor throughout the summer and prepare a draft plan report in the fall. The team and the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) plan to report findings to the General Assembly in December, prior to the opening of Session in January 2019.
To get involved, attend a meeting or provide feedback throughout the study period. Three series of meetings will be held along the corridor through Fall 2018.
The third and final series of meetings is planned for October 2018 and will focus on recommended packages of improvements. The first round of meetings was held in June and the second was held in August.
The public meetings will be held at the below-listed dates, times and locations. A brief presentation will be held near the beginning of each meeting. Immediately following, there will be an opportunity for the public to provide comments about the study. Individual formal comment will be limited to three minutes. The team will consider your comments as the plan is finalized.
An online, location-specific map is also available for those who cannot attend an in-person meeting.
