Ever, really, but especially now.

Increased Enforcement Scheduled to Cut Down on Speeding

Please be advised that as a result of continued speeding through the Crozet Streetscape / Crozet Avenue construction zone, Albemarle County Police will be increasing their patrol of the area. The objective is to encourage safe speeds in the construction zone and help insure the safety of both the workers and motorists in the area.

Streetscape Update – 21 April 2014

So far, I’d say the traffic disruptions from the Streetscape project have been relatively minimal. Hopefully I didn’t just jinx us all.

In the next two weeks, improvements between Tabor Street and Library Avenue should be close to 90% complete on the east side of Crozet Avenue. These improvements include curbing, sidewalks, bio-filters, retaining wall, and final grading.

The storm sewer system on the east side of Crozet Avenue has been installed to the Region Ten building. The final section of the storm sewer system, from the Region Ten building to the State Farm building, will be installed after the work in front of the library is complete, which is anticipated in roughly two weeks.

A lane closure on Crozet Avenue is anticipated in approximately two weeks in order to install a new sanitary sewer main.

Tabor Street is complete with final striping to occur within the next week.

Crozet Streetscape Groundbreaking 1 April at Noon

I know … ground has already broken, but still …(bolding mine)


Albemarle County officials including Supervisor Ann Mallek will join Crozet residents and business owners at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Crozet Streetscape project on Tuesday, April 1, at noon on Crozet Avenue in front of the new Crozet Library.

The new streetscape enhancements will improve Crozet Avenue to Tabor Street, including sidewalks, street trees, pedestrian/street lighting, crosswalks, and bio-filters. The streetscape project is an essential step in achieving the goals of the Crozet Master Plan by improving pedestrian connectivity within downtown Crozet, providing economic benefits and increased vitality for business owners, balancing the needs of all users including vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists, and aesthetically enhancing the entry way and main thoroughfare of downtown.
