I sat down with Amanda Poncy, Charlottesville’s Bike/Pedestrian Coordinator for a conversation about Monticello Road and what makes a successful neighborhood street.
Peter Krebs: I saw you measuring Monticello Road the other day, what were your impressions?
Amanda Poncy: We were looking at some of the curb ramp locations because it is one of the tighter, less accessible routes. Virginia Industries for the Blind is right there so it’s one of the more important places to make accessible. And of course it’s right next to the school as well so we’re trying to provide that accessibility for a range of users of the street.
