Riverside Drive is a significant corridor for the City. The Virginia Department of Transportation funded a STARS study along Riverside Drive from Piedmont Drive to Main Street. The objective of the STARS Program is to develop comprehensive, innovative transportation solutions to solve critical traffic congestion and safety challenges. This study did not identify significant congestion issues but it did identify potential safety improvements for both motorists and pedestrians. A public meeting was held on September 25, 2019, to provide information and to solicit public comments. This completed study can be used as supporting documentation in future transportation funding applications.The study was conducted by EPR, P.C.
It is recommended that City Council adopt the accompanying resolution endorsing the Riverside Drive STARS study.
