East Main Street — East Main Street, Highway 250, is a critical entrance corridor connecting Waynesboro to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park, Appalachian Trail, and other historic and recreational assets to the south and east. In early 2019 Waynesboro was selected as the recipient of the Creative Economic Development Consulting (CEDC) Creative Give Back award. CEDC studied the corridor during spring and summer 2019 and produced a Redevelopment Strategy and Marketing Plan in fall 2019. The complete study can be found here and an executive summary here.
Southern Corridor — A new roadway designed to help improve access and traffic flow in the city of Waynesboro is scheduled to begin construction in late summer of 2023. The Waynesboro Southern Corridor is a 1.6-mile two-lane road with a shared-use path, running roughly parallel to I-64 between exit 94 (Rosser Ave) and exit 96 (South Delphine Ave). The new corridor extends Shenandoah Village Drive along the northern edge of Coyner Springs Park and intersects with Lyndhurst Road across from North Oak Lane. It then follows the existing North Oak Lane over the South River, continues on a new location through the city’s industrial park, Nature’s Crossing Technology Center. The roadway ends at a new intersection with South Delphine Avenue. Construction is expected to take about two years to complete.
