Town Hall Updates Belvedere Community on Improvements

July 22, 2013

Albemarle County's Belvedere community is up to speed with improvement work in the neighborhood.

Supervisor Rodney Thomas hosted a town hall meeting at CATEC Monday evening to give residents a chance to hear more about what has already been done and what is still to come in the Belvedere Boulevard Bond Project.

Road work started on a few streets Monday morning and will continue throughout the development over the next several months.

"Pavement was milled, concrete, broken curbs are being removed and replaced. The handicap ramps are being replaced at the intersections are being demolished and are also being redone with the proper standards," said Jack Kelsey, a transportation engineer working with the county's facilities development office.

Crews will also work on several storm water management facilities.

"Part of the bonded improvements is going in there, cleaning those out and putting those essentially in their final design state so that they'll be managing storm water quality as well as the quantity of run off being generated by the development," said Kelsey.

Kelsey says the road work is expected to wrap up by late November.

According to Albemarle County's website, the purpose of the project is to "complete the Belvedere Boulevard and the neighborhood's streets, drainage, water, sanitary sewer and related construction according to the approved development plans."
