Replacing Belmont Bridge Would Cost Parking

Posted: Updated:

Replacing Charlottesville's Belmont Bridge might leave some commuters with a long walk. Dozens of cars park under and around the bridge during the week and for special events.

City Council is still trying to figure out its options. City spokeswoman Miriam Dickler, director of communications for the city of Charlottesville, says the city doesn't have a plan in place for the possible loss of parking.

"You know, we really don't know, because we're going to have to wait to see what plan is landed on to know what kind of impact it's going to have on the area, but any plan that's put in place will take into account any usability that's lost," Dickler said.

The city hopes to set up meetings to get more community input soon.
