The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Hampton Roads Military Transportation Needs Study – 2018 Update report.
The overall purpose of this planning effort is to determine military transportation needs and to provide an efficient and safe transportation network for the military in Hampton Roads. This 2018 update to the Hampton Roads Military Transportation Needs Study provides an update to Phase I (Highway Network Analysis, September 2011) and III (Roadways Serving the Military and Sea Level Rise/Storm Surge, July 2013) using the most recent data and analysis.
Based on stakeholder input, HRTPO staff identified a roadway network that includes both the Strategic Highway Network (STRAHNET) and additional roadways that serve the military sites and intermodal facilities not included in the STRAHNET. Staff reviewed this “Roadways Serving the Military in Hampton Roads” network to determine deficient locations, such as congested segments, deficient bridges, low bridge and tunnel vertical clearances, lane widths below military preferences, and segments vulnerable to flooding. The HRTPO staff will incorporate this work into future iterations of the Congestion Management Process (CMP) and the regional Long-Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) Project Prioritization Tool to assist decision makers as they select future transportation projects.
