Richmond Road (US 250) Corridor Study

The Richmond Road Multimodal Corridor Study was completed by Renaissance Planning Group in 2009, in cooperation with Augusta County, the City of Staunton, and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). Following the completion of the study, the corridor experienced several years of minimal growth resulting from the Great Recession.  While new development has increased in recent years, including initial phases at the Staunton Crossing and Frontier Center developments, the traffic growth forecasts associated with the future year analysis within the 2009 study can be considered unrealistic. 

Due to the age of the 2009 study, recent development activity, and continual safety concerns along the corridor, the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro MPO and the City of Staunton intend to:

  • Consider pedestrian and bicycle accommodations along Richmond Road with connectivity and access between and within Staunton Crossing and Frontier Center; and
  • Evaluate safety improvements along the corridor with a focus on the Richmond Road and Frontier Drive intersection.
  • Evaluate safety improvements along the corridor with a focus on the Richmond Road and Frontier Drive intersection.
