Albemarle Charlottesville Bypass Approved

The Route 29 bypass through Albemarle County and around Charlottesville has been approved. The opposition was fierce. So in several years we will have a way to avoid the congestion at 29 and Hydraulic Rd. Or will we? The chief proponents of the bypass are located in communities to the south of Charlottesville. In particular, Lynchburg representatives pushed hard for approval of the project. A lot of communities, such as Waynesboro, did not have a voice in the decision.As a personal injury attorney, I hope that the bypass will reduce the number of some of the horrible accidents that we see. Unfortunately, truck traffic may increase and speeds on the bypass will probably increase. In the end, more traffic means more accidents and we seem to be headed that way.
