Project details

Meadowcreek.jpg

The Meadowcreek Parkway Interchange is an element in the development of the city's portion of the Meadowcreek Parkway. Preliminary engineering work is ongoing, with the selection of a final design alternative slated for early 2008. Costs for the project range between $33 to $37 million. The majority of funding comes from an appropriation of federal funds announced in 2005. This came from an earmark from Senator John Warner (R-VA).

The City of Charlottesville is overseeing the project.

The project's stated purpose is:

  1. To enhance transportation mobility for local residents
  2. To safely accommodate projected future traffic volumes
  3. To accommodate and enhance pedestrian and bicycle needs in the project area

History

On February 18, 2003, City Council heard a report from NDS Director Jim Tolbert regarding an RFP that was being issued to study possible intersection designs for where the Meadowcreek Parkway would meet the Route 250 BypassCite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag. However, City Council decided instead to select Alternative G1, a signalized intersection[1], as its designated alternative.

The project is currently undergoing the Section 106 process with a variety of federal and state agencies including the Department of Historic Resources and the Army Corps of Engineers.

Steering Committee

The project's initial development was overseen by a steering committee, appointed by the Charlottesville Mayor and City Council.

Alternates: (also appointed by Mayor/City Council of Charlottesville)

Project Team: Technical Support Staff to Steering Committee
