LYNCHBURG/RICHMOND — For public health and safety, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will provide a virtual public comment opportunity on draft recommendations for potential corridor improvements on the Route 60 corridor in Amherst, Appomattox, Buckingham, Cumberland, Nelson and Powhatan counties that will enhance safety and capacity along the corridor while balancing the needs of economic development and access management. This opportunity will take the place of open forum meetings previously scheduled for March 26 in Buckingham and April 1 in Powhatan. This is the second and final public involvement opportunity for the Route 60 Corridor Study.
