CAT to Reroute Through Willoughby

Contact: Westley Kern, Marketing Coordinator
Address:  1545 Avon Street Extended, Charlottesville, VA 22902
Phone:  434-970-3349
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- October 14, 2014
CAT to Make Alignment Changes in Willoughby Square Shopping Center
Adjustments will take effect Saturday, October 18

Charlottesville, Virginia... 10/14/2014... Starting Saturday, October 18, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) will reroute routes 3, 4, & 6 through the Willoughby Square Shopping Center.  Rather than using the entrance off of Harris Rd, all three routes will access Willoughby Square via the two 5th St Ext entrances.  The current bus stop which is located on the northeast side of Food Lion will be relocated to the southeast side near the front entrance.
In addition, Route 3 will no longer serve the Willoughby Square Shopping Center when traveling in the northbound direction from Southwood.  Passengers who typically connect from Route 3 to Route 4 when traveling in this direction are encouraged to disembark at the bus stop located on 5th St Ext in front of Hardee's (Stop #15785).
Lastly, the new routing alignments may cause slight delays to Route 4, particularly in the late afternoons when traffic flow increases.  Passengers are encouraged to check CAT's real-time information either by calling 434-970-3649 or by downloading CAT's mobile app before making their way out to their CAT bus stop.

Charlottesville Area Transit provides bus service to the greater Charlottesville area.

Utility Installation Project to Begin in Late October on Jefferson Park Circle

I am writing to inform the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood Association about a utility installation project on Jefferson Park Circle. The need for the project was identified when reports of low water pressure were investigated. A new water main will be installed in the eastern loop of JPC from the intersection at McElroy to the intersection of Park Road and Brunswick Road. The new water main will improve flow and water quality for the houses along this stretch and a new fire hydrant will be installed to provide much needed fire protection for the neighborhood.
I expect that the project will begin near the end of October and should last 6-10 weeks. We will try to maintain through traffic during the project, but residents who use this road should be encouraged to find an alternate route, as vehicular traffic can significantly slow progress. Also, there may be times when the location of the construction requires a full closure of the road, except to local traffic only.
Additional notifications will be delivered directly to the residents immediately adjacent to the construction area.
I hope that you will share this information with the members of the neighborhood association. Any questions or concerns regarding this project can be directed directly to me at 970-3908 or
Thank you for your time.
