VDOT Names Local Cuts

VDOT has provided a listing of local transportation projects that they just won’t have the money to fund–a whopping 44% reduction in funds–and Sean Tubbs lists them for Charlottesville Tomorrow:

Project cuts on primary roads include:

  • Corridor improvements on Route 29 north of Charlottesville city limits (widening and safety improvements on Route 29 between the South Fork Rivanna River and Hollymead Town Center)
  • Corridor improvements on Route 250 east of Charlottesville City limits
  • A project to replace the bridge over the CSX Railway ¼ mile west of McIntire Road
  • A project to replace the bridge over the CSX Railway at Shadwell
  • A project to replace the bridge carrying Route 601 over the Route 29/250 Bypass

Project cuts on secondary roads include:

  • Reconstruction and add lanes for Route 649 (Proffit Road) from Route 29 to Baker-Butler Elementary
  • Widening of Route 601 (Old Ivy Road) from Route 250 to the 29 Bypass to four lanes

Also, the Hillsdale Drive Extension will receive no more funding until 2014. The list for all of Virginia is available on VDOT’s website.
