About the Study
The goal of the study is to develop a plan that VDOT and the jurisdictions can implement to make U.S. Route 13 a safer and more efficient transportation facility for the traveling public over the next 20 years. The proposed update study will assess what’s been done, determine what’s left, and if the recommendations remaining are still viable. The focus remains on safety and exploring opportunities to use new technology to enhance safety and operations along the corridor.
