Public Feedback is Invited for Greenville Ave Improvement Plan
Join us for the public meeting Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
The Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (SAWMPO) invites the public to attend an informational public meeting on the Greenville Avenue (Route 11) Corridor Improvement Study. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 5:00 – 6:30 pm with a brief presentation at 5:30, at Bessie Weller Elementary School cafeteria, 600 Greenville Avenue, Staunton. Attendees will have the opportunity to make written and oral comments.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and functional operation of the corridor with a focus on access management and pedestrian safety. Greenville Avenue experiences higher than expected collisions and afternoon peak hour operational issues. The study also identifies aesthetic improvements to establish the avenue as a vibrant gateway for the City of Staunton.
The study evaluates existing and future transportation conditions along a 2-mile segment of Route 11, from the Route 262 interchange in Augusta County to the intersection with Commerce Road and Coalter Street in Staunton.
The study team is comprised of staff from Augusta County, VDOT, Brite Transit, the Staunton Augusta Waynesboro MPO and the City of Staunton. Funding for final study recommendations will be considered by the city and county through state transportation programs.
