PORTSMOUTH – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is studying ways to enhance safety and improve mobility through a Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) study at the Route 17 (George Washington Highway) and Route 239 (Victory Boulevard) in the city of Portsmouth.

As part of this study, an online survey regarding this intersection is now open for participation and will remain open until Nov. 1, 2021.

The study limits include Route 239 (Victory Boulevard) from Bird Lane to Stevens Place and Route 17 (George Washington Highway) from Norfolk Southern Railroad to Gills Road.

Ultimately, the study will propose improvements designed to mitigate safety issues, improve traffic operations and alleviate congestion. Improvements being considered include:
Optimized traffic signal timing/operations;
Innovative intersections;
Access management; and
Pedestrian/bicycle facilities.
