At one point, Charlottesville city council wanted to close Old Lynchburg Road...but instead settled on less drastic measures.
The city unveiled their plans to fix the traffic and safety problems on the road Tuesday night.
Residents there have long complained about too many cars and speeders. Their concerns only grew with talk of a huge biscuit run development being built in the area.
Now residents are getting their first look at two sets of plans to improve the road.
“One is with sidewalks on both sides the other incorporates bike lanes meandering sidewalks and has a lot of pavement markings and special features to improve the pedestrian safety,” said Charlottesville City Attorney Tony Edwards.
The city will choose between these two options and the re-construction could start as early as next year.
