County Road Priorities

County Board of Supervisors holds a Transportation Strategy Worksession

Do you know the difference between a “primary road” and a “secondary road?”  Primary roads are the roads numbered


600 (e.g. Rt 22, Rt 20, Rt 29, Rt 240, Rt 250).

Secondary roads

are everything numbered

600 and above

(e.g. Jarman’s Gap #691, Proffit Rd., #649).

Yesterday, the Board of Supervisors (BOS) held a transportation strategy worksession.  Staff made a presentation following up on the Board’s action earlier this year to amend the County’s transportation strategy to dedicate a portion of capital funds toward

acceleration of secondary road projects

in VDOT’s Secondary Six Year Plan (SSYP).  In their presentation, staff recommended that two road improvement projects be accelerated:

Jarman’s Gap Road

in Crozet and

Georgetown Road

between Hydraulic and Barracks.  These are projects VDOT has been slow to fund and the County is looking for ways to speed them up with local resources.  Proffit Road was also mentioned as a future project that could benefit from acceleration.

Jarman’s Gap

Georgetown Road

Staff also recommended:

No action was taken by the BOS on these recommendations.  Staff stated they would come back to a future meeting with additional information for action by the Board.
