VDOT TO HOST MEETING ON ROUTE 60 CORRIDOR STUDY

STAUNTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a meeting regarding a study on the Route 60 Corridor between the intersection of Spotswood Drive and East Nelson Street in the City of Lexington and the intersection of Quarry Lane and East Midland Trail in Rockbridge County.
This study’s goal is to address long term transportation issues associated with the Route 60 Corridor. VDOT will consider multiple factors such as community input, traffic operation, future economic projections and existing corridor context.

The public is invited to a stakeholder meeting scheduled on May 21, 2012, at 7 p.m., at Lexington City Hall, 300 East Washington Street, Lexington, VA 24450.

Citizens are asked to take a few minutes to complete an online survey regarding the needs and improvements for the Route 60 Corridor at http://bit.ly/Rte60_PublicSurvey.

For the public’s convenience, VDOT has also made this survey available at City of Lexington, Rockbridge County and VDOT Lexington Residency offices. Public responses are important and will be used to develop a list of issues and improvements for the Route 60 Corridor.
The VDOT Staunton District serves Frederick, Shenandoah, Clarke, Warren, Page, Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Rockbridge, Alleghany and Bath counties.

VDOT can be followed on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and You Tube. RSS feeds are also available for statewide information. The VDOT webpage is located at www.VirginiaDOT.org.
