Status Update

A bicycle and pedestrian bridge is one of several transformative projects called for in the Rio Road Small Area Plan. [1]

This project supports the plan's vision of Connectivity and Conservation.

Description from plan

"A central transit station that allows for the convergence of transit routes connecting Downtown Charlottesville, UVA, and the Airport is planned to be next to or close by the Rio29 intersection. The station should be established when demand is sufficient, or concurrently with a priority bus route or Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Route 29."
