Jarman’s Gap Road – 15 October 2011, a set on Flickr.
Open this weekend for Crozet Trails Day, it’s easy to see that, with bike lanes, sidewalk and new lanes, this could be a fantastic road connecting the communities.
Update 16 October 2011: From our Board of Supervisor representative Ann Mallek:
The entire community is appreciative of the effort of VDOT to open the road for the Arts and Crafts festival and the pedestrian day. It did give up a great opportunity to see our future roadway in action.
I understand how painful the construction and the loss of trees is, and the ten year old design is wider than we might do it now, but I agree that the sidewalks, bike lanes and a 25 mph speed limit will be an asset to link our neighborhoods.
It was a bumpy bike ride yesterday, but Leo and I rode from Old Trail to Mountainside, McComb to Blue Ridge, Haden Lane to the trails in Old Trail. What a great way to see the neighborhoods. So many places to eat and so little time.
Leo and I figure we have 15-20 more years on the farm, then we will need to “come in” to town, and now we have some great ideas of places to land before we need to move into the Lodge.
