Reservoir Street Improvement Project

Thanh -- December 25th, 2007

There’s a Public Information Meeting scheduled for January 9, 2008 from 4:30-7pm at the Harrisonburg Rescue Squad (1700 Reservoir Street) to review the proposed improvements for Reservoir Street from the intersection at University Boulevard to South City limits. 

The project has a website,,  to help keep residents up to date on the planning and implementation process and progress being made.  The website’s homepage says:

“Numerous developments throughout the corridor are in various stages of the approval and construction process, including:

  • The new Rockingham Memorial Hospital location south of the City is also expected to attract new traffic to the corridor.
  • Several new apartment and townhouse complexes along Reservoir Street within City limits.

Because of this rapid growth and need for improved bicyclist/pedestrian accommodations, the City has recognized the need to plan ahead for the future traffic operations of the area.” 

An ad posted in the DNR Saturday December 22 (page 9) for the Meeting says “Interested citizens are encouraged to provide their input regarding design features which may be considered for this corridor including roadway typical section, and proposed bicycle and pedestrian facilities.”

I hope those who are interested take the City up on this opportunity to offer suggestions and make comments.

    I agree. The city could use more websites like that.
