Study Background

The purpose of this study is to identify project recommendations for the U.S. 250 (Ivy Road) corridor, including the interchange with U.S. 29, within Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville. The focus of this study is on improving roadway safety, reducing traffic congestion, improving access, and enhancing multimodal accessibility and connectivity for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users, including how these needs might be satisfied by facilities within the Route 601 (Old Ivy Road) corridor. The study is building off previous study efforts, including significant community engagement, for the study area led by VDOT and the localities.

The study team developed several sets of improvements packages based on input from the study partners and a focus group made up of several interest groups within or adjacent to the study area. The improvement packages described on the following pages cover several scenarios that have evolved over the course of the study.
