From East Charlotte Street to Church Street
The Phase 1 survey regarding potential transportation safety, operations, congestion mitigation, bicycle/pedestrian/transit access, and transportation demand management improvements on the Monticello Avenue/St. Paul's Boulevard corridor, from East Charlotte Street/Wood Street to Church Street, in the city of Norfolk is complete.
The purpose of this study is to analyze the operational and safety issues identified on Monticello Avenue/St. Paul's Boulevard from East Charlotte Street to Church Street, with a focus on providing enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access as well as congestion mitigation and safety improvements. From 2018 to 2022, there were 392 crashes along the corridor; 69 percent were angle crashes, and 16 percent were rear-end crashes. In the same time period, there were seven crashes involving pedestrians with two pedestrian fatalities and three total fatalities. Improving safety for all road users is a focus of this study. Congestion mitigation is also needed, particularly at the southern end of the corridor related to the I-264 ramps and at the northern end in the vicinity of 26th Street and 27th Street. The objective of this study is to identify cost-effective preferred improvement alternatives that address the deficient conditions and prioritize safety for vulnerable users.
