By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Charlottesville officials want to hear from the public regarding improvements to bicycle and pedestrian facilities at the Monticello/Ridge and Monticello/Second Street intersections.

The city was recently awarded funding by the Virginia Department of Transportation to make improvements, such as shortening pedestrian crossings through curb extensions, adding Americans with Disabilities Act crossing features, and bicycle lane pavement markings.

There will be a Citizen's Information Meeting at City Space on the Downtown Mall on April 17 where people can learn more about this project and review the plans for it.

More information can also be found at the link in the Related Links box.

The city is also saying it is willing to hold a public hearing on this project if concerns of residents cannot be addressed.

Residents can request a public hearing by sending a written request to Amanda Poncy, Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, City of Charlottesville, Neighborhood Development Services, 2nd Floor, 610 East Market Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902.

People with questions should call Poncy at (434) 970-3720.
