The Route 29 Advisory Panel is scheduled to meet Thursday to continue discussing ways to improve the corridor through Charlottesville.
This is the third meeting for the panel, which is made up of officials from across Central Virginia.
The Virginia Department of Transportation has set aside about $200 million for improvements to the Route 29 corridor in Charlottesville, which is often heavily congested.
The issue for the panel is figuring out the best way to do that within budget, and with a design that will take four years to complete.
The meeting is at 1 p.m. today at the Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research in Charlottesville. It's open to the public, but comments will not be taken.
