DRAFT- Candidate Segments for Road Diets in Hampton Roads

The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT Candidate Segments for Road Diets in Hampton Roads report.

A “road diet” converts a road into a street, i.e. facilitates accessing origins and destinations along the segment, a) by reducing the number of lanes which one must cross to turn left into a driveway, and b) by repurposing the width of excess travel lanes typically for a central two-way left-turn lane between travel lanes, on-street parking, and/or bike lanes.

To help localities find roads to investigate for a possible road diet, HRTPO staff investigated the pros and cons of road diets to determine the criteria defining situations in which road diets may be desirable, and then prepared a database and maps providing information on those criteria for existing 4-lane undivided segments with suitable traffic volumes in Hampton Roads.

All interested parties are encouraged to review the draft report and send comments to Rob Case at rcase@hrtpo.org or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320. The deadline for comments on this draft report is February 28, 2018.
