The Route 29 Project Delivery Advisory Panel will hold its first meeting later this week.
The 12-member panel will advise the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) during design and construction of the improvement projects along the Route 29 corridor in Albemarle County and the city of Charlottesville.
“Communication and coordination with the community will be critical to the success of these projects,” said John Lynch, VDOT’s Culpeper District administrator. “The advisory panel represents the groups that will be most directly affected by these projects and we will work closely with them as well as others to ensure that the projects are designed and delivered with consideration for their impacts on those who live, work and travel along Route 29.”
The group includes representatives from the city and county governments, local businesses and the environmental community.
The advisory panel’s first meeting will begin at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 10, at the Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research at 530 Edgemont Road, Charlottesville.
The meeting is open to the public, but public comments will not be taken during the meeting. The public can submit comments online at www.Route29Solutions.org.
The panel’s meetings will be live-streamed over the Internet and podcasts will be posted to the Route 29 Solutions web page after the meetings. A link to the Internet streaming service is also posted on the project web page.
