Embark Richmond Highway is an initiative focused on creating a multimodal future for the Richmond Highway Corridor. This effort responds to recommendations from the Route 1 Multimodal Alternatives Analysis, conducted by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT), and intends to assess and refine the recommendations from the study by providing more detailed guidance in the Comprehensive Plan for the implementation of transit in the corridor. Embark Richmond Highway also includes coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and federal agencies to conduct Environmental Assessments (EAs). Details about the EAs can be found on the About the Study page.
The recommendations from the Route 1 Multimodal Alternatives Analysis include:
A 13-member Advisory Group was appointed by Supervisors McKay and Hyland in the spring of 2015. The Advisory Group is comprised of Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation (SFDC) members, representatives from the Lee and Mount Vernon Supervisor Districts, and an at-large representative. This group assists with community outreach, provide local and/or subject area expertise, offer input on technical work and recommendations developed by staff, and reach out to stakeholders and the public to encourage participation. In addition, the Advisory Group offers input on technical work and plays a key role in disseminating information about ongoing activities and communicating with staff about any concerns or questions they are hearing from the community related to the project. All advisory group meetings are open to the public. Visit the Meetings page for more information. Click the tabs on the top of the screen for more information on the study.
