Input sought on transportation
Transportation officials are looking for public input for a study aimed at improving how commuters, and travelers in general, get around Northern Virginia and the surrounding region.
The study is focusing on how to develop current and future modes of mass transit in the region in line with land use, population growth and employment centers, and travel patterns and trends, according to the Super NoVa website.
Work on the Super NoVa Transit and Transportation Demand Management Vision Plan study, which focuses on Northern Virginia but also stretches to Caroline and Culpeper counties, started in October. Numerous public meetings have already been held.
The Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation is the lead agency for the study.
As part of the study, officials are collecting data on travel demands and needs, and gathering input from residents before they give recommendations later this year.
Three public meetings are scheduled for May:
Tuesday, May 15—From 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle.
Tuesday, May 22—6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Warren County Government Center in Front Royal.
Thursday, May 24—From 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Navy League Building in Arlington.
