The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is seeking feedback on a transportation study focusing on improving safety and preserving capacity along Route 11/460 (West Main Street) from Fallbrooke Drive (Route 940) to Pleasant Run Drive (Route 796) including the Dow Hollow Road intersection in Roanoke County.
The study will evaluate traffic operations and safety conditions and consider a range of improvements that may be developed into applications for transportation funding.
VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and take an online survey through August 22. Community input received through this survey will help the study team identify existing issues along the study corridor and develop recommendations for potential improvements that will be evaluated and presented during the next phase of the study, which will include another opportunity for public comment. Learn more at https://vaprojectpipeline.org/studies/salem/sa-23-10.asp.
The survey, which has a translation tool for other languages, is available at https://publicinput.com/sa-23-10. Comments can also be sent to Carol.Moneymaker@VDOT.Virginia.gov or to Carol Moneymaker, Virginia Department of Transportation, 731 Harrison Avenue, Salem, VA 24153.
This study is being conducted as part of the Project Pipeline program, which was created by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB). Project Pipeline is a performance-based planning program to identify cost-effective solutions to multimodal transportation needs in Virginia. Project Pipeline is led by Virginia’s Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI), in collaboration with VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT).
The Commonwealth is partnering with Roanoke County and the Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization to develop targeted improvements for the Route 11/460 at Dow Hollow Road Project Pipeline Study that minimize community impacts and address priority needs in a cost-effective way. This study is expected to be complete in summer 2024; it does not set construction dates for any improvements. The final plan will provide a multimodal investment strategy that can be used to seek and secure funding through programs including SMART SCALE, revenue sharing, interstate funding, and others.
