The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is studying ways to improve one of the highest crash corridors in the region — Route 250 (Jefferson Highway/West Main Street) in Augusta County and the City of Waynesboro. VDOT is studying a 1.8-mile long stretch of US 250 between Old White Bridge Road and Hopeman Parkway.
Over 900 respondents participated in an online survey in January and provided feedback on the draft study alternatives. The results of the survey, and the final study and recommendations, are anticipated to be complete by March 2020.
Proposed improvements are intended to make the corridor not only safer, but also a more welcoming place to walk, bike, meet the bus, or travel by personal vehicle. VDOT, Augusta County, and the City of Waynesboro are working on the project, along with ATCS Consulting, BRITE Transit, and the SAWMPO.
