CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - New construction could soon be coming to the Barracks Road Shopping Center area.

On Monday, April 2, Charlottesville City Council approved more than $8 million in grant funding. The money will be used to create additional right-turn lanes to Emmet Street North and Barracks Road West.

It will also create a multi-use sidewalk on Emmet Street, as well as upgrade a current bus stop and shelter.

The cash is from SMART Scale submissions, which go through the government.
