The Harrisonburg-Rockingham Metropolitan Planning Organization (HRMPO) held a public meeting for the transportation study of bicycle and buggy access and safety improvements at the VA 42 (John Wayland Highway) and Garbers Church Road intersection. The meeting was held on July 19, 2018, from 4-6 p.m., at the Dayton Municipal Building, 125 Eastview Street, Dayton, VA. Members of the public attended to learn more about the study.
The study team includes Rockingham County, Town of Dayton, and VDOT staff, as well as representatives from the Rockingham County Bicycle Advisory Committee and the Old Order Mennonite Community. The MPO is using consultants Hurt and Proffitt for this project. Hurt and Proffitt Inc. is part of the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission On-Call Consultant program. The consultants will use input from the study team and the public to refine two to three options for improving buggy and bicyclist access to destinations north of Garbers Church Road on VA 42. The study will conclude in early fall.
