Scene Near Fry's Spring, 1914



One night recently, my friend Jeanne Chase had to wait for 27 cars to pass by (yes, she counted them) before she could exit her driveway onto Old Lynchburg Road. Ironically, she was trying to make her way to a meeting about a new development in Albemarle County that could add even more traffic to her narrow, winding City street. This is a situation that's calling out for relief.

Imagine if the worst problem that Fry's Spring residents had to deal with was a free-roaming cow in their neighborhood??

That's big problem with Albemarle county government. They've got all these projects in the pipeline- but have no plans for dealing with the additional traffic they will bring. It's putting the cart before the horse. It's almost as though someone is thinking- "If we procrastinate long enough with the road issues/upgrades then we can fix them the way we want with no hassle or public debate because at that point people will just be hungry for any solution." And that's just irresponsible.
