Wow... At 4 hours, his walk on the proposed bypass was still faster than navigating 29N on a Friday Evening before a holiday.

The reason it took this long is it was blocked by some of the people on the board. The ones against it would love to be able to stop it any way they can; I hope they lose and it goes in.

The BOS members against it should be made to drive Rt 29 every morning and every evening for a month....maybe that would help educate them!

Does the so-called WB drain money from transportation projects that residents in each and all of the Districts need? How responsive is the so-called WB to the manifold transportation needs of each of the other Districts, and the County entirely - as expressed by County residents, not special interests from outside the County?[ or is the State Senator from Lynchburg a County resident?= better not be, if he wants to keep his seat ]

What specific transportation projects requested by residents from throughtout the County are being eliminated, wait listed, or pushed farther out in time because of the so-called WB?[ Dear BOS: detail to the voters each project eliminated, wait listed, or pushed farther out in time because of the so-called WB ]

What special interests in support of the so-called WB - not from Albemarle County residents or registered voters in Albemarle County - have paid anything - in money, inkind support, reimbursement, endorsements, or other amenities - to BOS campaigns?[ BOS members: please release all details, of every dollar given your campaign, every dinner or reception or trip that you did not pay for out of pocket? etc ]

If the so-called WB will be built, why has the majority of the work gone to interests outside the County, without primarily and maximally benefiting County residents? How will the County maximize direction of all money related to the so-called WB to unemployed and poorly employed County residents?

If the so-called WB will be built, how will plans incorporate other transportation needs and goals of the County, and demanded by County residents, including - multi-modal transportation, including public transit, biking, walking, as well as automobiles? e.g. how will the so-called WB incorporate bike ways, walk ways, public transit that connects safely with existing and proposed bike ways, walk ways, and public transit?[ BOS: please detail your plans to make all these connections '

If the so-called WB will be built, how will plans incorporate access to economic opportunity for all income levels in the County, access to housing opportunities for all income levels in the County, access to recreational opportunities for all ability levels (from youth to old age, from active ability to impaired abilities)?[ BOS: please detail your plans to make all these connections '

These questions need - and expect - BOS reflection, discussion, and answers.

All people seem to know how to do these days is have meetings to discuss - heaven forbid anyone of them should actually DO something constructive!

Let's cut this to the chase: Grandstanding, bedwetting politician who probably aspires to higher office issues press release to media announcing he is going to walk the route so he can grandstand.

The best vote for disingenuous, young politician liar comment: "My vote for or against will depend on this walk." Let's see if DumDum votes for it after his little hike.

BTW, he looks a tad like Halfaday...is they related?

R.I.P.: Brian Jones

The 6-mile hike was undoubtedly good for his cardiovascular system, but not for anything else. Was he technically trespassing? I'd like to know if he obtained prior permission from owners of portions of the route not already in VDOT possession.

Maybe we should make the politicians all live in Forest Lakes so any semblance of a soul they have left can be sucked from them with a modified leaf blower.

Then they would understand.

Its not a so called by pass, it is a by pass, a means of getting around so called dolts like you. There's no such thing as 0 population growth which, Einstein, means there are more drivers on the roads every day. The bypass as proposed is not what it should be as bypasses go but at least its better than nothing.

Q: Why did Dumler hike the By-Pass?
A: Because his Prius was in the shop!
