Utilities Going Underground in Downtown Crozet

From the Daily Progress:

A plan to improve downtown Crozet’s streetscape will cause some short-term pain for drivers, Albemarle County announced Wednesday.
Crews from Dominion Virginia Power, Comcast and CenturyLink are scheduled to relocate utilities over the next two months. The process is expected to disrupt traffic along Crozet Avenue, Tabor Street, High Street and the square, according to a release.

The work is part of a larger drive to enhance and preserve downtown Crozet, the release states. The finished project will feature crosswalks, benches, bike lanes and sidewalks.

So … let’s all take a breath when we’re waiting in the likely delays … downtown will be nicer for it.

And, in case you were wondering why power lines are going underground …

Here’s what bad overhead power lines look like. *
