The purpose of this study is to identify project recommendations for the Route 11 (Main Street) corridor within the Town of Abingdon. This study will focus on improving roadway safety, reducing traffic congestion, enhancing multimodal accessibility/connectivity (pedestrian, bicyclist, and transit), and accommodating parking needs. The project recommendations that come from this study will be developed into funding applications for VDOT's SMART SCALE program and other transportation funding programs.

This Phase 2 survey is intended to obtain public input on the alternatives under consideration to address the issues that were identified by the study team and through the Phase 1 survey that was conducted in June and July 2023. In general, most of the respondents to the Phase 1 survey identified the need to reduce traffic congestion, improve roadway safety, and improve pedestrian accessibility as their primary considerations for the study corridor.
