Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center Small Area Study

The Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center (WWRC) Small Area Study focuses on the US 250 (Jefferson Highway) corridor between Idlewood Boulevard and Barren Ridge Road, and the roads and facilities within the WWRC complex in Fishersville, VA.

This location was selected by the MPO's Technical Advisory Committee due to recent institutional, residential, and commercial growth in the area, and increasing concerns regarding how this growth is impacting corridor operational and safety conditions. This study will examine corridor operational and safety issues, alternative/secondary access locations to the WWRC Complex, and access management along US 250, to develop short- and long-term improvement recommendations. Study recommendations will be used to develop transportation improvements for the area.

The study is a collaborative effort between the SAWMPO, VDOT, Augusta County, Augusta County Schools, and WWRC. It is scheduled to be completed by December, 2017.

We encourage you to stay involved and learn more about the study, future community meetings and project status updates.
