Public meeting for the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Area Long-Term Transportation Plan Wednesday

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — There will be a town hall meeting Wednesday on the 2045 Long-Term Transportation Plan for Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.

The Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission, along with the Harrisonburg Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization, will have mapped the proposed projects and are hoping to get feedback from residents.

“What we’re really hoping for is first and foremost to encourage people to take the survey and to know that the survey exists was trying to get the public’s opinion on these projects on the things that we important but we want to make sure we are actually doing what the public wants us to do,” said Ansley Heller, transport planner at CSPDC.

On the survey, they have writing projects, which are projects they know they want to pursue. It also includes future projects that further studies that may be needed in the years to come.

“A lot of people are commenting on Chicago Avenue improvements, so it’s going to have a lot of different layers,” Heller said. “So it’s about building a roundabout at the intersection of Waterman Drive and Chicago Avenue.”

The project also includes a section on building sidewalks, bike lanes and drainage improvements in areas from Mount Clinton Pike to Gay Street.

Heller said many projects are about making roads more pedestrian-friendly.

People also have many suggestions for future studies.

“We hear that a lot, especially from county residents, who want us to really look at Dinkle Avenue for capacity and safety and things like that, so this future study for Dinkle Avenue has potential. for future corridor capacity,” Heller said.

The survey is available until September 16.

Upon completion, the CSPDC and HRMPO will review and score the projects and select the highest rated or most needed to move forward.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday afternoon from 4 to 6 p.m. at Turner Ashby High School.
