SHRP2 Interstate 64 Corridor Study

The SHRP2 I-64 Corridor Plan: Shenandoah Piedmont Area Collaborative Effort (SPaCE) is an inter-regional corridor planning study undertaken by the Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO (CAMPO) and the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro MPO (SAWMPO), and evaluate the corridor between Charlottesville and Staunton. The roughly 40-mile multimodal Interstate 64 corridor is the primary connection between the Piedmont and Shenandoah Valley regions of Virginia. 

Background

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has awarded the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) a SHRP2 User Incentive Grant to develop a Corridor Study for Interstate 64. The study area spans the I-64 Corridor from Pantops, east of Charlottesville, to the City of Staunton. The study area crosses multiple jurisdictional boundaries and interests, including two PDCs, two MPOs, five localities and three VDOT Districts. TJPDC will contract with the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission (CSPDC) to perform activities in the SAWMPO region. 

Study Intent

Using FHWA's PlanWorks, a working group will be formed with the goals of identifying corridor deficiencies, developing solutions, and building cross-boundary and cross-disciplinary partnerships. The development of these partnerships is essential to furthering cooperation between local, regional, state and federal agencies; alleviating jurisdictional barriers; and identifying common needs. It is anticipated that the study will be completed by September 2017.

Interactive Study Area Map

The I-64 Corridor Study team has developed an interactive Corridor Study Map. This resourse was developed using FHWA's Planworks corridor planning decision guide, input from the study's working group and stakeholders, and MPO staff, enables users to interactively examine the study area and provides insight regarding the I-64 Corridor's current conditions and future needs. The interactive Corridor Story Board and Map provides information on crashes, roadway volume, percentage of trucks, pavement and roadway conditions, and environmental factors. The Story Board and Map also identifies future needs and recommended corridor improvements.
