Residents, City Staff Discuss Road Conditions in Rose Hill

Posted: Updated:

Residents of the Rose Hill area of Charlottesville met with city staff Wednesday to discuss how to improve road conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists in the neighborhood. 

Problems currently facing the neighborhood include speeding and a lack of crosswalks.

Amanda Poncy, Charlottesville's bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, laid out three different options that would improve current conditions:

  1. Painted buffers on the side of the road
  2. Planted mediums to make it easier for people to cross the street
  3. A street lane painted green to designate either a pedestrian or bike lane.

Options two and three would remove parking on one side of the road and would also narrow traffic lanes.    

"One of the things that I do think will come up is parking on Rose Hill Drive because in order to achieve some of the longer term goals there might be a need to take away some parking spaces," said Poncy.

Feedback about the three options will be taken into consideration and will go toward establishing a final plan.
