When we launched the environmental study in 2012, the community told us that traffic congestion was a serious problem. In fact, 83 percent of survey respondents agreed that a goal of any proposed improvement should be to reduce congestion and manage traffic. We are committed to identifying a long-term mobility solution that provides meaningful traffic relief for Oak Hill and the surrounding communities. We are in year six of a six-year study, and we continue to welcome your input!

We are often asked whether a smaller project could address the congestion problems in Oak Hill. Unfortunately, the answer is no. Traffic demand on this corridor is just too high. The project team is designing a project that meets the traffic demand along the corridor today and best manages the traffic projections of tomorrow. We are trying to keep the footprint as small as possible in order to responsibly meet the purpose and need of the project, and it is important to us to design something that requires very limited right-of-way acquisition. Please note that the non-tolled design is the same as the tolled design previously shown to the public.
