Most of the Albemarle Supervisors favor the latest proposed remedies for the traffic congestion on 29 North. The board voted 5-1 Tuesday night to support a more than $200 million package that includes a grade-separated interchange at Rio and 29. John Martin of Free Union agrees with the board’s majority, but he wishes it had more support from the business community. Former Supervisor L. F. Wood (pictured) of the North Charlottesville Business Council wants to see a more thorough study of the proposed grade-separated interchange. Ken Boyd was the only supervisor who voted against the package that was created by former VDOT commissioner Philip Shucet. The Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Commonwealth Transportation Board will consider Shucet’s recommendations.
