As of 2011, the MPO Policy Board has endorsed a series of projects to provide a parallel road to Route 29 along Dickerson Road, one of two unpaved roads in Albemarle County's designated growth area. However, the County Board of Supervisors has recently[when?] put the project on indefinite hold given the ongoing revenue shortfall. The project remains on the MPO's Transportation Improvement Program[1]. To date, the project is proceeding only through VDOT's State Environmental Review Process.

Two bridges needed

In order to complete the project, at least two bridges will need to be repaired or replaced. One is located at the North Fork Rivanna River and carries a cost estimate of just over $5 million. The other would span Jacob's Run and is estimated at $2.17 million[2].
