VDOT to present transportation mobility study for Town of Elkton


vdotlogoA public participation meeting to review a transportation mobility study for the Town of Elkton will be held on January 11. The meeting will take place from 6 to 7 p.m., at the  Elkton Area Community Center, Council Chambers, 20593 Blue and Gold Drive, Elkton.

A formal presentation will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

The Town of Elkton Area Study is a cooperative, planning level study between the Town, the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission (CSPDC) and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) that focuses on identifying future multimodal transportation needs and improvement recommendations for the Town.  The study limits consist of the general downtown area of Elkton bordered by Stuart Avenue (U.S. Route 340) to the east, Spotswood Trail (Business Route 33) to the south, and Spotswood Avenue to the northwest.  The study forecasts the anticipated transportation demands for the year 2040 to evaluate the existing transportation network and develop future transportation recommendations.

Initial existing year and future year 2040 evaluations of the transportation network within the study area indicated that the existing network adequately accommodates anticipated vehicular traffic growth. Therefore, the study focuses on improving the pedestrian and bicycle network within the Town and identifying opportunities for expanding parking areas within the downtown area.

During the meeting, citizens can come in and discuss the project on a one-on-one basis with VDOT and local officials. Written comments can be submitted at the meeting or within 10 days after the meeting date to Mr. Adam Campbell, Virginia Department of Transportation, 811 Commerce Road, Staunton, VA  24401-9029.

The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.
