Commerce Corridor

Transportation Connectivity, Accessibility and Economic Opportunity Study

Jobs and transportation go hand in hand. Recognizing the link between economic opportunity and transportation infrastructure that efficiently moves people and goods, the Richmond region and the Virginia Secretary of Transportation are conducting a study of a key jobs corridor in the Richmond region.

The Commerce Corridor Transportation Study capitalizes on the opportunities provided by the Richmond Marine Terminal, operated by Port of Virginia. The effort will analyze short-, medium-, and long-term improvements to the vital industrial and commercial corridor along 13-miles of Interstate 95 spanning from the James River in the City of Richmond to Route 10 in Chesterfield County.

A project plan and investment strategy effort is now underway and scheduled for completion in early 2017.

The collaborative planning effort of state, regional, and local interests is led by the Richmond Regional Transportation Planning Organization with financial and consultant support provided by the Virginia Secretary of Transportation's Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI).

If you are a resident of the Commerce Corridor and would like to provide input to inform this study, please complete our survey.
