PUBLIC HEARING JAN. 10 FOR RT. 250 BRIDGE REPLACEMENT
Give input on preferred construction alternative
CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an upcoming design public hearing on the proposed replacement of the Route 250 (Ivy Road) bridge over Little Ivy Creek in Albemarle County.
The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Mount Calvary Baptist Church, 3045 Morgantown Road, Charlottesville.
At the open house-style hearing, VDOT staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. The public can review project plans, ask questions and obtain information about the project’s timeline, cost and travel impacts, as well as provide feedback on the project orally or in writing.
VDOT proposes to replace the existing substandard bridge, located 0.25 mile west of Route 637 (Dick Woods Road) with a four-cell box culvert. VDOT is presenting two construction alternatives for public input:
- The first alternative proposes to expedite construction by closing Route 250 at Little Ivy Creek for two weeks. Traffic would be detoured to Interstate 64 or could use alternate secondary routes.
- The second alternative involves a phased approach to construction. The bridge would be reduced to one lane and two-way traffic would be controlled by temporary traffic signals for at least three months. Motorists should expect delays, especially during rush hour.
Written comments can also be submitted by mail to Howard Tomlinson, Project Manager, 1601 Orange Road, Culpeper, VA 22701 through Jan. 20. Email comments can be sent to Howard.Tomlinson@vdot.virginia.gov.
Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact VDOT at 540-829-7500, 800-367-7623 or TTY/TDD 711.
