Panel prefers grade separation for Hydraulic-29

The Hydraulic Planning Advisory Panel has recommended a grade-separated intersection as its preferred scenario for the U.S. 29-Hydraulic Road intersection.

The panel — which is made up of representatives from the Charlottesville and Albemarle County governments, local businesses and the environmental community — has been meeting for a year and identified three scenarios for long-term roadway, bicycle and pedestrian transportation improvements around the intersection area, and on Thursday chose the grade-separated intersection as its preferred scenario.

The first, preferred, scenario involves a grade-separated intersection, similar to the intersection of U.S. 29 and Rio Road, and would depress Hydraulic Road under 29. Construction would cost somewhere between $63 million and $80 million, plus about $5.2 million for utility relocation.
