VDOT’s Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program “develop(s) comprehensive, innovative transportation solutions to relieve congestion bottlenecks and solve critical traffic and safety challenges throughout the Commonwealth." The study will evaluate operational and safety conditions and identify short- and long-term improvements for a segment of South Main Street from Mosby Road to Stone Spring Road/Erickson Avenue. It will also evaluate and perform preliminary design work for an innovative intersection at Erickson Avenue & Pear Street.
The Study Team held a scoping meeting on June 25, 2019. The next Study Team meeting on September 24, 2019 will review existing conditions, safety and operations, analysis of Synchro modeling work, and discuss several concepts that have the highest potential for improvement on the corridor/intersection. STARS studies typically require 9-12 months to complete. The Study Area locations are highlighted in Orange in the below picture:
