Old Lynchburg Road is a roadway in Charlottesville and southern Albemarle County.


The road's northern terminus is at its intersection with Jefferson Park Avenue Extended next to the Fry's Spring Beach Club. After becoming State Route 631 in Albemarle County[1], the road extends southward to Plank Road in the southern part of the county.

The site of the proposed town of Traveller's Grove was located at the junction of this road and the Taylor's Gap Roads.

Transportation projects


Main article: Old Lynchburg road improvements

The addition of sidewalks, bike lanes and drainage improvements on the city portion of Old Lynchburg Road is in the final design stage[when?].

Future projects

Old Lynchburg Road would also be affected by the County's proposed $12.8 million Fontaine/Sunset Connector project, designed to provide motorists with another access to the road. That project is on indefinite hold.


After the project was completed, speed-tracking technology deployed by Paul Reynolds showed that speeding remains an issue on the street. [2]
