Charlottesville Tomorrow has a detailed report on yesterday’s Meadowcreek Parkway Interchange meeting. Meadowcreek Parkway has been discussed, and planned, and discussed for an obscene amount of time. Our area needs this to be built.Â I hadn’t seen this before – 250 Bypass Interchange Project site.
This is what happens when government is not involved in a construction project (for better or worse) –
The North Grounds Connector will be open for traffic Friday. The new route connects Massie Road with the 29/250 Bypass. The University used its own money to build the Connector, which is opening five months ahead of schedule. (bolding mine)
A project gets done!
You know I noticed that as well. Didn’t they start building that around this time last year?
If VDOT had been involved it probably would’ve taken 5 years at about 4 times the cost. Perhaps we should privatize VDOT.
