In June 2004, the County of Albemarle was awarded a $296,000.00 federal safety grant for pedestrian related safety improvements on Hillsdale Drive between Rio Road and Greenbrier Drive. The purpose of the grant was to identify safety improvements that could be done without major reconstruction. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission, the City of Charlottesville, and the County worked cooperatively to complete a safety study for Hillsdale Drive that perfectly matched the grant requirements. This study identified pedestrian improvements with the input from the public after several public meetings. The project will include 1,514 linear feet of new sidewalk starting on Greenbrier Drive and extending east on Hillsdale Drive ending at Mall Drive, three landscaped crosswalks with pedestrian signal systems at two of the crosswalks, and 1,700 linear feet of new sidewalk on Old Brook Road and 420 linear feet of sidewalk along the Fashion Square Mall on Rio Road.
Bids for the construction phase of this project have been received and VDOT has authorized the County to proceed. The $296,000.00 in grant funding, in addition to the $312,000.00 in local funding previously appropriated, will cover the project costs including design, which has already been completed, and construction.
