ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Community members are invited to attend a public hearing on a proposed bridge project.
The Virginia Department of Transportation will be holding a design public hearing on a proposed rehabilitation project on the Morey Creek bridge on Fontaine Avenue Extended in Albemarle County.
The hearing will take place Sept. 17 at 5 p.m. at the Virginia Department of Forestry on Natural Resources Drive.
VDOT will have staff on hand to talk about the project and answer questions.
Attendees will be able to review project plans, ask questions, and get information about the timeline for the project as well as any travel impacts it may have.
