The Commonwealth’s Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment will hold an open house on the Northern Virginia North-South Corridor Master Plan Study from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, December 18, 2012, at Stone Bridge High School, 43100 Hay Road in Ashburn. An open house will also be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 19, at the Four Points Sheraton Manassas Battlefield, in Manassas.
The Northern Virginia North-South Corridor Master Plan Study, underway since May 2012, is now completing the evaluation of transportation options that connect major centers of activity within the study area. The corridor has been designated a “Corridor of Statewide Significance” by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB). According to the CTB, the new corridor would be the area generally east and west of the Route 234/Prince William Parkway and the CTB-approved location of the Tri-County Parkway between Route 95 and 50, and connections to the Dulles Greenway and Route 7.
The study team will share evaluation results of the transportation alternatives and preliminary recommendations. The alternatives will address access to major activity areas, transit service and non-motorized modes of travel, environmental considerations, and transportation funding and investments within the corridor.
Written comments about the study may be given at the open houses or e-mailed by January 2, 2013, to Media Contact: Anna Nissinen, Public Affairs and Communications Officer, 703-777-0113; email@example.com. Comments may also be submitted to the study’s public outreach coordinator, Susan Sharp, Sharp & Company, 794 Nelson Street, Rockville, MD 20850.
