Traffic Alert: Hillsdale Drive in Charlottesville

Midday on Friday, August 11th a major traffic shift will occur when traffic from an existing section of Hillsdale Drive (north of Greenbrier Drive) is relocated west to a new section.

charlottesvilleHillsdale Drive has been realigned opposite of existing Pepsi Place. Stop signs will be erected on Greenbrier Drive. Hillsdale Drive/Pepsi Place will have the right of way and be free flow (no stop signs). Vehicles from Route 29 will now need to stop on Greenbrier Drive before turning left onto the new section of Hillsdale Drive or right onto Pepsi Place. Vehicles will also need to continue to stop on Greenbrier Drive from the east as before, but in a new location.

Electronic Message Boards have been used to notify the public of the upcoming traffic shift and will remain for several days after the traffic shift to notify drivers of the new configuration.

Speed limit is posted at 25 MPH – please drive carefully.
