People had the chance to learn and weight in on changes to Route 29 in Albemarle county on Monday evening.

Albemarle county supervisors Brad Sheffield and Diantha McKeel held the meeting to talk more about ideas and how to move traffic more efficiently through the 29 corridor.

Topics the audience asked about included making 29 bike-friendly, left turns onto 29, light synchronization, and VDOT selling back right of way and demolishing old homes it had purchased when the bypass was the future plan.

Meeting attendee and Albemarle county resident Dori Doyle said she's worried the state won't take now that a bypass will not be built.

"I'm just thankful that we live in a country where we can have this kind of give and take. And I hope that the Commonwealth Transportation board will listen to the voices of the local people whose lives will be affected by their decision," said Doyle.

Sheffield and McKeel will hold another public meeting on May 5 at Jack Jouett middle school, 7-9 p.m.
