HR04: US 13 - Military Highway

I-264 Ramp Termini to Virginia Beach Boulevard Ramp Termini


survey

The survey regarding potential transportation safety, operational and transit access improvements along Military Highway (Route 13) between I-264 and Virginia Beach Boulevard, including the intersections of Hoggard Road/Best Square, Poplar Hall Drive, and Military Circle is complete.


project purpose

The purpose of this study will be to analyze the operational and safety issues identified along US 13 (Military Highway) between I-264 and Virginia Beach Boulevard, including the intersections of Hoggard Road/Best Square, Poplar Hall Drive, and Military Circle, with a focus on providing enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access.

This corridor has a high number of rear-end crashes related to congestion and a high number of angle crashes at intersections related to drivers entering/exiting driveways. Three bicyclists and nine pedestrians were struck by vehicles between 2015 and 2019, three of whom were killed. Two Hampton Roads Transit bus routes serve the Military Highway corridor, and the Military Highway Tide light rail station is nearby.

The objective of this study is to identify cost-effective preferred improvement alternatives that address the deficient conditions and prioritize safety for vulnerable users.
