WILLIAMSBURG—Public feedback is being sought on a transportation study assessing potential operational and safety improvements along Humelsine Parkway (Route 199), between Brookwood Drive and John Tyler Highway (Route 5) in James City County and Williamsburg.
The study will identify and analyze traffic issues along this corridor and its intersections, with a focus on congestion mitigation, safety improvements and enhanced pedestrian, bicycle and transit access. This analysis of the Route 199 corridor also includes potential improvements at the Route 199 intersections at Brookwood Drive, Jamestown Road, John Tyler Highway, as well as John Tyler Lane at John Tyler Highway.
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback online at VAProjectPipeline.org. Study materials include a presentation and executive summary, as well as an online survey are available through March 19, 2022.
Community input received through this survey will help the study team further refine and finalize potential improvements. The study partners may consider the recommendations for possible advancement through future local, regional, state and federal transportation funding programs.
This study is being conducted as part of a new program, Project Pipeline, created by the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB). Project Pipeline is a performance-based planning program to identify cost-effective solutions to multimodal transportation needs in Virginia. Through this planning process, projects and solutions may be considered for funding through programs including SMART SCALE, revenue sharing, interstate funding and others.
Project Pipeline is led by Virginia’s Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI), in collaboration with VDOT and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). The Commonwealth is partnering with James City County, the City of Williamsburg, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization and consultant Kimley-Horn to develop targeted improvements for the Route 199 Project Pipeline Study that minimize impacts to the community and address priority needs in a cost-effective way. The final plan will provide a multimodal investment strategy that can be used to seek and secure funding.
