Traffic meeting in Varna Monday night

Concerned about the impact of traffic on Route 366? I am. Here's a chance to talk about it.

Later this month, residents will have a chance to learn about findings of a transportation study of the Route 13/366 corridor, as they relate to the Hamlet of Varna.

Results of the Route 13/366 Corridor Management Plan, prepared for the Tompkins County Planning Department, will be presented at a public meeting, to be held on Monday, June 30th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Varna Community Center, 943 Dryden Road, Ithaca.

Results of the transportation study relevant to the Varna area will be reviewed and strategies for implementation will be discussed.

The Route 13/366 Corridor Management Plan reviewed physical and operational characteristics of the roadway to assist in determining the future scenario for development along Routes 13 and 366.

For more information on the transportation study, visit the County Planning Department web site at www.tompkins-co.org/planning/Route13CorridorStudy.htm.

Contact: Planning and Public Works Commissioner Ed Marx, 274-5560.

This sounds like it's based on a study I thought was dreadful, but the parts specifically about Varna were okay (removing the passing zone), so hopefully something useful will come out of it. Varna could certainly use some relief from the traffic that slices through it.
