Route 151 Corridor Study

Nelson County

Public Information Meeting 

Thursday, May 16, 2013, 6-8 p.m. 

Rockfish River Elementary School

200 Chapel Hollow Road, Afton, VA 22920

VDOT’s current study of the Route 151 Corridor has identified operational and safety deficiencies on the 14-mile corridor from US Route 250 (Rockfish Gap Turnpike) to Route 664 (Beech Grove Road). These deficiencies include observations at the 15 key intersections identified at a meeting with the Nelson County Board of Supervisors. Potential improvements have been identified to address these operational and safety deficiencies based on the analysis, field reviews, input from Nelson County officials and comments received at the first public information meeting.

As a part of the study, VDOT is seeking the public’s input on the potential recommendations to ensure that no solution has been overlooked. Following this public information meeting, VDOT will prepare draft findings which will be presented to the Nelson County Board of Supervisors to ensure their agreement. Once the draft findings have been adopted, VDOT will finalize the study.

Stop by between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to view displays and learn about the project. VDOT staff will be available to answer your questions.
