Driving through Crozet could soon be a bit more challenging thanks to phase two of the streetscape project about to get underway.
The first phase of the project was completed in 2008 at the intersection of Crozet Avenue and Three Notched Road. The next step is set to begin around the end of January and when it starts, drivers can expect to start seeing delays.
The first part of the project will be along Tabor Street, which will be shut down completely during daytime hours until around the beginning of March. There is a proposed detour route for that road.
County leaders say construction on either side of Crozet Avenue will reduce the road to one lane for most of the summer.
"It's pretty impossible to do a project down the main street of an area like Crozet and not feel some impact. We are working very hard to mitigate those impacts and we really do believe that the community will find that the end result is very worth the inconvenience,” said Albemarle County spokesperson Lee Catlin.
The total cost for all the work is estimated to be around $1.4 million.
