STAUNTON — The public is invited to participate in a brief online survey available between Tuesday, April 16 to Sunday, May 12. It should be noted that the survey input deadline has been extended to May 12.

This study is being conducted by the Virginia Department of Transportation in partnership with the City of Harrisonburg and the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Metropolitan Planning Organization.
