PEC Field Officer, Jeff Werner, has been struggling with how to explain the issues surrounding the proposed Rt. 29 Western Bypass just north of Charlottesville. The trickiest part is describing what's at stake -- real fixes for Rt. 29 that this bypass will all but preclude.

These sustainable solutions are at risk due to The Western Bypass.
The Western Bypass:(AKA: The Road to Nowhere)The highly ineffective, tiny bypassthat wil do nothing to bring sustainable improvements to local trafficon Rt. 29. A wasteful project that VDOT gave an F, and thatwil cost approximately $250,000,000 of tax payers’ money, whiledoing more harm than good to the local community .
If the Western Bypass is built, almost al l of the six fixes wil not happen.This doesn’t have to be the case.
