Do you support the U.S. 29 - Rio Rd Interchange proposal?
Monday, May 12, 2014 at 9:52 a.m.

A $203 million package of solutions to ease traffic congestion on U.S. 29 through Albemarle and Charlottesville was unveiled last week.  The proposals include one new road, a grade-separated intersection at Rio Road, study of a similar facility at Hydraulic Road, and a down payment on a second daily Amtrak train.  We'd like your opinion in our reader poll (and comments below!) on one of the proposals in the package.

Do you support the U.S. 29 - Rio Rd Interchange proposal?

This PowerPoint presentation includes larger images and shows how approaching thru-traffic would be shifted to the middle lanes passing under Rio Road thus avoiding the traffic signal.  In the image below, North is at top.
