VDOT asks to contribute to traffic improvement on Route 199 in Williamsburg

WILLYSBURG, Virginia (WAVY) – The Virginia Department of Transportation has opened an online survey for people traveling on Highway 199 in the Williamsburg area.

VDOT is seeking feedback as part of a transport study on Route 199 between Brookwood Drive and John Tyler Highway (Route 5) in James City and Williamsburg counties.

There are several traffic lights on the short section, and sometimes backups appear after accidents or while traveling.

“The study will identify and analyze traffic problems along this corridor and its intersections with a focus on reducing congestion, improving safety and improving pedestrian, bicycle and transit access,” VDOT wrote in a press release on Friday.

The study will look for improvements that can be made on Route 199 or at intersections in the area.

Feedback can be given online at VAProjectPipeline.org. The online survey available until March 19.

Project Pipeline is a program within the Commonwealth Transportation Board that aims to find cost-effective solutions to the problems and needs of road traffic in Virginia. Projects and ideas identified under the program may be eligible for funding through programs such as SMART SCALE, revenue sharing, intergovernmental funding, and others.
