Battlefield Blvd/168 Interchange (HR02)

Help us improve travel in Chesapeake. Provide feedback on potential transportation improvements (safety, operational, bicycle/pedestrian and transit access) along Battlefield Boulevard between Gainsborough Square and Great Bridge Boulevard/Kempsville Road, including the Chesapeake Expressway (Route 168 Bypass) interchange.

Take the survey through April 5, 2022.
https://metroquestsurvey.com/jf5q5p

This effort is part of VDOT's Project Pipeline. Project Pipeline is a performance-based planning program to identify cost-effective solutions to multimodal transportation needs in Virginia.

The purpose of this study will be to analyze the operational issues identified at the Battlefield Boulevard and Route 168 interchange, with a focus on providing enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access. The surrounding area sees an influx of over 93,000 commuters, which places stress on the interchange and adjacent intersections - leading to significant congestion during AM and PM rush hours. Travel patterns at the interchange are also tied to operations on I-64. The objective of this study is to identify cost-effective preferred improvement alternatives that address the deficient conditions and provide connectivity to pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders.

Here are some practical tips from the US Department of Energy on how to beat high gas prices:

1. Slow down.
a. Each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph is like paying an additional $0.15 per gallon for gas.
b. Aggressive driving (speeding, rapid acceleration and braking) wastes gas.
c. Equivalent Gasoline Savings: $.12-$.82/gallon

2. Keep your car maintained and running smoothly.
a. Tune ups
b. Clean air filters
c. Tires properly inflated
d. Proper grade of oil

3. Use your engine wisely.
a. Avoid Excessive Idling
b. Use Cruise Control and overdrive gears

4. Be smart about driving.
a. Plan errands to do them together, rather than separate trips
b. Carpool
c. Mass transit
d. Telecommute

5. Keep your car light.
a. Too often a car become long-term storage facilities

Here's another:
6. Use Gas Apps to find the cheapest gas near you (e.g. GasBuddy)

https://www.change.org/p/hampton-roads-transit-all-hrt-bus-stops-need-covered-benches Anybody who rides the bus or avoids riding the bus knows that passengers could use some protection from the elements. In order to have a more pimpin' and better connected Hampton Roads with less gridlock, I ask Hampton Roads Transit to invest in covered benches at each individual stop. When a freak downpour occurs on a sunny day, people's books, paper bags, cereal, and work uniforms get soaked!!! I ask anybody who agrees to sign my petition. I am sure that if Missy Elliot or some notorious athlete were to say the same things that this petition would get millions of digital signatures. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a blessed day!
