Charlottesville Tomorrow reports that “Nearly seven in 10 local residents say a need exists for a bypass of U.S. 29 around Charlottesville, according to a new survey. But almost as many said they would be in favor of exploring alternatives to the approved Western Bypass if they cost less and were effective in relieving congestion.”
Basically, Charlottesville people want transportation improvements – whatever they may be.
Keep in mind, Charlottesville traffic is relative; to those of us who live here, twenty minutes is a far drive. To those not from here, twenty minutes is short. And no, we’re not used to Northern Virginia traffic.
