The Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization and BRITE Transit will hold a public meeting for the Richmond Road Corridor Study and the 250 Connector Route Study on Wednesday, April 10, from 4-6 pm in the Staunton City Council Chambers, 116 W. Beverley St.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend to learn about the studies and provide input.

The corridor study is conducting an operational and safety analysis of the Richmond Road corridor between the I-81 Exit 222 interchange and Frontier Drive in Staunton. The study objectives are to improve safety, develop new multi-modal facilities in the corridor, and reduce current and anticipated future congestion. Study recommendations presented at the meeting will be used to guide future transportation improvements in the area.

The BRITE Transit route study is examining options for improving service on the 250 Connector route, which runs between Staunton and Waynesboro along US 250, serving major destinations like the Augusta Health, WWRC, Walmart (Staunton and Waynesboro), Augusta County Library, and the Waynesboro Town Center.

The SAWMPO is leading the effort in collaboration with BRITE Transit, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Cities of Staunton and Waynesboro, and Augusta County, as well as a team of consultants. Study team staff will be available to answer questions and record comments.
