Public Meeting for 5th Street Hub and Trails Project

Thursday, March 15th, 2018, 4:30 PM
Location: TJPDC's Water Street Center, 407 Water Street East , Charlottesville, Virginia

The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission (TJPDC) is hosting a public meeting on the 5th Street Hub and Trails Project on Thursday, March 15, 2018 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in TJPDC’s Water Street Center, 407 East Water Street.

The design team has been meeting with stakeholders over the past several weeks, and the purpose of this open house is to present the proposed locations of multi-use trails based on input received. The site for the project is a triangle of land at the confluence of Biscuit Run and Moore's Creek between 5th Street Station, 5th Street Station Parkway, 5th Street and Interstate 64.


TJPDC serves as the project sponsor for this project, which is funded through a Transportation Alternatives Program Grant. Land Planning and Design Association (LPDA) is the design consultant. This project was selected for award by the Commonwealth Transportation Board in June 2016, funded through the FY17 Surface Transportation Block Grant Set-Aside for Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Projects. The project budget includes $399,880 of Federal Funds, and $200,000 of local funds from the proffer agreement for the 5th Street Station development, which also provides some dedicated land for the project.

The constructed trails will provide a connection to 5th Street as well as to neighborhoods to the south of I-64. This area is central to a network of walking and bicycle facilities for the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County and will link multiple neighborhoods and resources in both localities.

The project contract calls for construction to be complete by October 1, 2020.
