The future of Crozet’s transportation matrix was discussed by Albemarle transportation planning manager Kevin McDermott at the January 27 Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting, where he presented options for solutions to many of Crozet’s most vexing traffic problems. McDermott began by reviewing items from the 2010 Master Plan that have been achieved, from the Crozet Streetscape project to sidewalk, bike, and pedestrian improvements and various street alignment studies that lay the groundwork for new roads.
Looking ahead, the aim of many of the county’s proposals for the 2020 Master Plan is to unclog overloaded intersections that cause long wait times, and to satisfy residents’ vocal demand for more bike/ped trails and paths throughout the area.
