Albemarle Board of Supervisors Meeting – 5-17-2023 –

When I think about it, I dig into the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors’ agendas to see what Crozet-specific information is being discussed. Why? Because I live here, and, knowing this stuff helps me better represent clients buying or selling in and around Crozet.

Anything jump out at you in their agenda?

Here’s what I found

  • Looks like they are updating the Beaver Creek Dam Supplemental Watershed Plan Agreement
  • The VDOT/Albemarle County FY 24-29 Secondary Six-Year Plan Public Hearing looks interesting.
  • So does VDOT’s May report. Looks like the very-much-needed 240/250 Roundabout will be advertised for bids in Winter 2024.
    • I’d be curious to see what current traffic counts are.
      • During construction, VDOT proposes to close Route 680 to through traffic between Route 250 and Route 802 (Old Three Notched Road) with a posted detour. Traffic would be detoured via Route 240 to Route 802 for about two months.  
      • Approximately 7,000 vehicles use Route 240 near the intersection, according to 2017 data. The traffic count on Route 250 is about 10,000 vehicles and Route 680 carries about 580 vehicles per day.
    • “I-64 Exit 107 Park and Ride” to be advertised in 2024.
    • “Rte. 680 Browns Gap Turnpike Bridge Replacement over Lickinghole Creek” will be advertised in 2025.
  • Completed Studies
    • “250/1815 Old Trail – Pavement Markings – Crosswalk markings to be installed Spring 2023.”
    • “1815 Old Trail at Bishop Gate Ln. – Pavement Markings – Mid-block crosswalk and ADA ramps to be installed Summer 2023.”
  • Studies Under Review
    • “Route 240 at Music City Today and Starr Hill Brewery – Pedestrian Crossing – Field investigation complete; Plans have been finalized, estimated cost approximately $153k” – my comment: how in the world is this not a priority?
