Judge Norman K. Moon of the U.S. Western District Court has dismissed a lawsuit from the Coalition to Preserve McIntire Park that claimed the Federal Highway Administration unlawfully split three components of the roadway in order to evade environmental scrutiny.
Anyone up for a bet as to when the Meadowcreek Parkway will be completed? I’m thinking 2015.
I’d love to know when the Meadowcreek Parkway was first proposed; that’d be an interesting addition to CvillePedia. For newcomers, it’s been discussed since well before 2005 when I first started this blog. I believe it’s been in the works for at least 40 years, but I can’t find that cited anywhere.
I do know this – whether it’s one word (Meadowcreek) or two words (Meadow Creek) – in true CharlAlbemarle fashion, we’re going to have another road that goes from Point A to Point B that has (at least) two names: the County section is now the “John Warner Parkway” and the City’s section will likely be something else.*
Update 30 May 2012: Seems there may already be an appeal in the works. I’d wager that the vast majority of Charlottesville folks – while they may not necessarily be in favor of the Parkway are ready for it to be built.
2005 – more Meadowcreek Parkway studies!
2005 – Meadowcreek Parkway lawsuit.
* One of my favorite examples of the “one road, many names” in Charlottesville is Barracks Road – from Sugar Hollow to Nest, the road name changes multiple times, yet the road remains the same.
