Proffit Truck Ban Requested

The Albemarle Supervisors voted unanimously to seek a ban on through traffic on Proffit Road by big-rig trucks, WINA reports. The road is often used as a shortcut by trucks going from Route 64 to Route 29 and seeking to avoid the bypass. The problem is that the narrow, twisty road was never constructed with tractor-trailers in mind. With Baker-Butler Elementary School opening on Proffit this August, it’s no surprise that the vote was unanimous. The request will be sent to VDOT, who will make the final decision. Peter Savodnik has a lengthier story in the Daily Progress.
