Keswick Community Members Push VDOT for Additional Access Road

Posted: Updated:

The Albemarle Board of Supervisors just approved the construction of hundreds of mixed-use homes in Keswick - but not everyone is happy.

The Glenmore Community, the next-door neighbors of the soon-to-be-built Rivanna Village, says there will be too much traffic to share Glenmore Way, the only road they use to access Route 250. Community members say everyone except the Virginia Department of Transportation wants to see another access road built - but VDOT is holding up the process.

“That road is very heavily traveled. There’s at least 4,000 vehicles a day, between 4,000 and 4,5000 vehicles using that entrance road a day right now,” said Trevor Joscelyne of the Glenmore Community Association.

Construction is slated to break ground this summer.

VDOT opposes building another entrance and says the safer alternative is to use Glenmore Way. Glenmore residents plan to continue to reach out to other leaders in the community for a different alternative.
