Weigh In on the Region's Long Range Transportation Plan

Public Outreach Event

Wednesday, August 28th from 5pm to 7pm in the Water Street Center

The Charlottesville-Albemarle MPO would like to invite you to the 2040 LRTP Public Outreach Event. This event will focus on the process that has been implemented to date and the next steps in this process. We are also seeking public input regarding the 3rd Round Scenario Analysis. Currently the MPO is analyzing three different scenarios for this round. These scenarios focus solely on capacity-building improvements (roads and transit). We will be looking at other kinds of improvements (bike and pedestrian, bridges) later in this process. For more information please visit the 2040 LRTP website,

Old Lynchburg Road Safety, Sidewalks and Drainage Update


Hello everyone,
We are quickly approaching the completion of most of the major elements involved in this OLR project and even adding new one. (New paving to Azalea Park /City Limits)

Scheduled activities weather permitting: (60% chance of rain on Tuesday!)
Monday – City milled OLR from Middleton Lane to city limits. Coordination has been made with Finley to have the final paving done at the same time that the section north of Middleton is paved.

Tuesday – Finley is making concrete repairs, utility meter adjustments, patching street asphalt, delivering materials to pond area, ie. bio-mix, mulch and landscaping, and complete stone weir.

Wednesday –  S.L. Williamson and Finley will be placing final surface mix asphalt from JPA to City Limits. Finley will coordinate with the owner and address all adjustments made on individual driveways.

Thursday – Placement of pavement markings and new signs along roadway.

Friday – Install bio-mix, mulch and plantings

Monday – complete hand railings. Finley will address all new fencing with the individual owners as needed.

Traffic controls will be in place to limit cut through traffic north of Middleton Lane to JPA and maintain one lane of traffic for that section south of Middlton Lane.

Thanks to everyone ahead of time for your cooperation, while we make these improvements.

 Updates: fencing started today and  final paving will start Thursday.
