|Jermantown Road Corridor Improvements Handout|
The City is preparing applications for the August 1 Smart Scale submission. New Smart Scale guidelines limit the City to four applications. One of the City’s proposed projects is the Jermantown Road Corridor Improvements project.
The City proposes to implement a package of improvements for Jermantown Road between the new (V-DOT constructed), wider bridge crossing I-66 and Fairfax Blvd (Route 50) to improve mobility, reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. The City plans to apply for NVTA and Smart Scale funding to complete the engineering work and construct this project.
Smart Scale applications require an extensive amount of information including detailed design and cost information. Although the funding would not be received for six or seven years from now, VDOT’s expectation is that if the funds are awarded, the City will construct the project as proposed in the application. As a result, it is critical to have meaningful public outreach before submitting the application.
