A small area study will commence this month to examine congestion and safety issues at the intersection of US 250 & Woodrow Wilson Ave / Lifecore Drive in Fishersville. The Staunton Augusta Waynesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (SAWMPO) is leading this effort in partnership with Augusta County, VDOT and an engineer selected from the CSPDC On-call Consultant program.
The study area extends along US 250 between Idlewood Boulevard and Barren Ridge Road; and on Woodrow Wilson Avenue (VA 358) from US 250 to the Y intersection with Hornet Drive. The study will analyze observed and recorded congestion and safety issues, evaluate a potential new connection to the Wilson Workforce Rehabilitation Center, and develop a set of short- and long-term improvement recommendations. The study is to be completed by the end of 2017.
