Sidewalks coming to Crozet

In spite of my reluctance to just post press releases, this is a pretty important one:Sidewalks and streetscapes are an integral part of creating a walkable and pedestrian-oriented downtown Crozet.  The current sidewalk project, Phase I, will get underway in the next several weeks and will focus on the area from the railroad crossing on Crozet Ave to the current Crozet Library.  Stormwater improvements will be focused along Crozet Avenue from the Rescue Squad to the Dairy Queen intersection.  The project will include construction of new and replacement of existing storm- water utilities, addition of curb and gutter, new sidewalks, handicap curb ramps, concrete pavers, stamped concrete crosswalks, painted crosswalks, pedestrian lighting, pedestrian warning lights retaining walls and landscaping.Project Open HouseDate: Wednesday, February 28Time: 4:30 pm – 7:00 pmPlace: Crozet Methodist Church Fellowship Hall Drop by at your convenience to view project maps and graphics and to talk to county staff and consultants about the sidewalk/streetscape project.Details, including a graphical representation of the project, are available on the Crozet Master Plan website.
