The Town of Floyd examines downtown roadway and parking improvements with Regional Commission and Virginia Department of Transportation staff.  In February, Regional Commission staff presented a summary technical report to Town Council.  The report documents the existing right-of-way, and conditions of a local roadway and parking lot.  In addition, Regional Commission staff partnered with local subject experts to develop conceptual improvement visualizations and cost estimates that the Town can use to pursue implementation funds.  The image above, developed by Regional Commission staff, illustrates a new bump-out intersection, aimed at improving sight distance.

 This report was developed through the Commission’s Rural Transportation Work Program.  Do you have project ideas for your community?  If so, Fiscal Year 2020 program development is underway now.
