SECRETARY LAYNE TO CONVENE RT. 29 ADVISORY PANEL
Panel will be chaired by former VDOT Commissioner Philip Shucet

Secretary of Transportation Aubrey Layne announced today that he will assemble an advisory panel to assist with the development of a plan to guide improvements along the Route 29 corridor in the Charlottesville region. The group will include local and regional officials.

“The input and support of local officials and others who represent the communities along the Route 29 corridor will be critical as we move forward identifying reasonable solutions to the easing congestion and improving mobility in the Charlottesville region,” Layne said. “Doing nothing is not an option.”

Additional details about the advisory group and the path forward toward recommendations for transportation improvements along the Route 29 corridor will be presented to the Commonwealth Transportation Board at its March 19 meeting in Richmond.
