VDOT seeks comments on study to improve Rt. 114-460 intersection

Comments will be received March 21 through April 4 via online survey

SALEM – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in partnership with the Town of Christiansburg invites residents and travelers to provide input on a transportation study to address safety and concerns for bicyclists and pedestrians on a section of North Franklin Street and a section of Peppers Ferry Road in Christiansburg.

The study will analyze the operational and safety issues on the section of Route 460 Business (North Franklin Street) between Farmview Road and Merrimac Road and on the section of Route 114 (Peppers Ferry Road) between Stafford Drive and Arbor Drive.

Public comments on the study will be accepted through an online survey from March 21 to

April 4, 2022. Information about the study and the online survey can be found on the VAProjectPipeline.org website or using the direct link at Route 460 Business and Route 114 in Christiansburg.

Community input received through this survey will help further refine and finalize potential improvements. The study partners may consider the recommendations for possible advancement through future local, regional, state and federal transportation funding programs.

This study is being conducted as part of a new program, Project Pipeline, 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. Through this planning process, projects and solutions may be considered for funding through programs including Smart Scale, revenue sharing, interstate funding, and others.

Project Pipeline is led by Virginia’s Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI), in collaboration with VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). The final plan will provide a multimodal investment strategy that can be used to seek and secure funding.
