[ARCHIVED] More input sought for Piney Forest Road study

A survey remains open for citizens who want to share their experiences on the busy Piney Forest Road corridor from Holt Garrison Parkway (vicinity of Coleman Marketplace) to Franklin Turnpike.

To access the survey, click on this link: The deadline for completing the survey is May 31.

The Danville Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) created the survey as part of a study to identify strategies and improvements to address existing and future traffic congestion, safety concerns, and the ability to more comfortably walk, bicycle, and use transit in the corridor. The 2.5-mile study section of Piney Forest averages over 27,000 vehicles per day.

Improvements being considered include signal timing changes, intersection lane configurations, addition of medians and turn lanes, pedestrian safety enhancements, sidewalks and shared-use paths, and transit shelters.

Public feedback is a crucial part of the development of this study.

A virtual town hall was held on April 27. To view the recording or learn more about the study, visit:
