RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Virginia Department of Transportation has opened a survey on ways to improve the safety and reliability of the Bryan Park Interchange.

The Bryan Park Interchange is located on the north end of the section of the freeway where I-95 and I-64 overlap. The interchange has faced challenges such as congestion from on and off-ramps that lead to I-64, I-195 and Hermitage Road (VA-161).

Drivers have the option to choose the top five priorities in which improvements need to change:

  • Transportation Safety
  • Merging On/Exiting Off-Highway
  • Environmental Protection
  • Signs and Markings
  • Pedestrian Accessibility
  • Bicycle Accessibility
  • Traffic Congestion Mitigation
  • Equity and Accessibility

Kyle Gibson, a spokesperson for VDOT, says people can rank these priorities and point out areas of concern on a map when they fill out the survey.

He also says there are possible solutions that could come out of this survey.

“Some of the possible ones could be extra lighting, additional turn lanes, better access management,” he said.

Gibson also says there could be possible solutions involving traffic controls and techniques.

The survey will be open until Aug. 2. To fill out the survey, click here.
