Albemarle County residents will have an opportunity to get information and make comments on a proposed Park and Ride commuter parking lot at U.S. 250 and Interstate 64 exit 107 west of Crozet.

VDOT will hold a design public hearing on Wednesday from 5-7 p.m. at the Crozet Library, 2020 Library Avenue, Crozet.

The meeting will be held in an open forum format where project team members will present information about the proposed project and answer questions. Attendees may also provide written or verbal comments about the project.

The project will construct a lot with 25 parking spaces, a bus pull-through, bus shelter and bike racks. It will also extend the westbound left-turn lane on U.S. 250 and requires a change in the limited access control on I-64 and U.S. 250.

The $5 million project was funded in the fourth round of SMART SCALE project development in fiscal year 2022. Advertisement for construction is scheduled in October.

More information about the project, including a location map, may be found on the project web page: www.vdot.virginia.gov/projects/culpeper-district/interstate-64-at-exit-107-park-and-ride-lot-albemarle-county on the VDOT web site.
