From Ann Mallek:
Thank you to everyone at VDOT involved in expediting the closure portion of the Jarman’s Gap Road construction. I drove on it three times on the second day. While the finishing touches are yet to be done, the road will quickly prove to be the asset needed since the neighborhood approvals began, using the roadway as a basis, in the 1980’s. Residents of Bargamin Place, Wayland’s Grant, Grayrock, Old Trail and the neighbors to the west will again feel connected to downtown. The sidewalks and bikelanes will fulfill that promise of a “quick stroller push or bike ride” from the center.
The neighbors along the right of way have made huge sacrifices of property, shade trees, and peace and quiet for the betterment of their community. Thanks to you all as well. Have a safe Thanksgiving and I look forward to more progress with the Streetscape in the New Year.
