What is Embark?

Embark Richmond Highway (Plan Amendment 2015-IV-MV1) is an initiative focused on creating a multimodal future for Richmond Highway Corridor where residents, workers, and visitors can walk, bike, or drive to the places they want to go. This effort responds to recommendations from the Route 1 Multimodal Alternatives Analysis, conducted by the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) and intends to assess and refine the recommendations from the study by providing more detailed guidance in the Comprehensive Plan for the implementation of transit in the corridor. Embark Richmond Highway also includes coordination with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and federal agencies to conduct Environmental Assessments (EAs).
