BRISTOL—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is seeking feedback on two transportation studies assessing potential safety improvements in Lee and Tazewell counties.

The surveys are part of a study that began last year. Elements of the studies include improving roadway safety and preserving capacity of the corridor.

VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and take an online survey February 12-25. Community input received through this survey will help the study team identify existing issues along the study corridor and develop recommendations for potential improvements that will be evaluated and presented during the next phase of the study.

This study is being conducted as part of the Project Pipeline program, which was created by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB). Project Pipeline is a performance-based planning program to identify cost-effective solutions to multimodal transportation needs in Virginia.

This study is expected to be complete in summer 2024; it does not set construction dates for any improvements. The final plan will provide a multimodal investment strategy that can be used to seek and secure funding through programs including Smart Scale, revenue sharing, interstate funding, and others.
