Isle of Wight planners were sent back to the drawing board last month to determine if the residential density increases in ISLE 2040 would generate enough vehicle trips to warrant a review by VDOT.

The threshold for a review by the state is adding more than 5,000 vehicle trips a day to major roads, said VDOT spokeswoman Laurie Simmons.

What VDOT is finding hard to understand, however, is where Isle of Wight came up with the numbers it is using to justify ISLE 2040, she said.

“That number is just a lot,” said Simmons of the estimated 27,000 new residents projected to come to Isle of Wight in the next 25 years.
