Richmond Road (US 250) Corridor Study (2019)

The Richmond Road Multimodal Corridor Study was conducted by the SAWMPO with the City of Staunton, Augusta County, and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to identify transportation improvements for the US 250 Corridor between Frontier Drive and the northbound I-81 ramps (Exit 222).

The purpose of the study was to identify strategies to improve travel for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transit users as well as improve safety and traffic flow in the corridor. The corridor serves both local and regional traffic and has regional transportation significance as it provides the most direct connection between Staunton and Waynesboro through Augusta County. Several adjacent development projects are expected to progress in the coming years, namely Staunton Crossing and Frontier Center, which will bring more travel activity to the corridor.
