Public Meeting Concerning Road Projects
10 November 2018 News
The Commonwealth Transportation Board is holding public meetings across the state to give citizens a chance to provide input on projects that have been submitted through Virginia’s data driven prioritization process SMART SCALE. Winchester and Frederick County have submitted 13 projects totaling about 76 million dollars. Following public feedback, the Commonwealth Transportation Board in conjunction with scoring data, will determine which projects receive funding for the next Six Year Improvement Program in June. No public meeting is being held in the Winchester Area; but the closest meeting will be held in Fairfax at the NOVA District Office on November 28th.
Some of the projects open to discussion include; U.S. 11 South improvements, including bicycle and pedestrian accommodations and intersection improvements between Battle Park Drive and and Renaissance Drive, adding a full-length shoulder to the right side of Interstate 81 between exits 313 and 317, and synchronizing some of the traffic signals along the Valley Avenue in Winchester.
