The Harrisonburg Public Works Department is preparing to reconfigure a busy intersection to improve the flow of traffic in the area of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and Reservoir Street.
The scope of this project includes the realignment of the I-81 Exit 245 northbound off ramp to intersect Port Republic Road directly across from the Forest Hill Road intersection.
The Plan's overall goal is: "To present an easily communicable, comprehensive vision for the public streetscape in Downtown Harrisonburg that can be utilized by public and private agencies to further develop and sustain a vibrant downtown."
The Chicago Avenue Corridor Study focuses on Chicago Avenue from Gay Street to Mt. Clinton Pike, Mt. Clinton Pike from Lincolnshire Drive, just beyond the city line, to Virginia Avenue (VA Route 42), and Park Road and Parkwood Drive where they run through the campus of Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) and Eastern Mennonite High School (EMHS).
The Design Public Hearing for the Mt. Clinton Pike Road Improvement Project will be held at Park View Mennonite Church, 1600 College Avenue, Harrisonburg, VA 22802.
