U.S. Bicycle Route 76 is an on-road National Bike Route that spans the eastern half of the U.S., from the Midwest (Missouri) to eastern Virginia (Williamsburg). Along this path, the route passes through the Thomas Jefferson Planning District, including the City of Charlottesville, along with Louisa, Fluvanna, Albemarle and Nelson counties. Within the TJPDC boundaries, Route 76 accounts for approximately 136 miles of roadway. As part of its FY14 Rural Transportation Program, TJPDC staff will conduct a corridor study of these road segments that make up Route 76. This will be a three-phased effort, which will include:
Phase I: An Inventory of existing conditions;
Phase II: A promotional campaign that would provide route information and online resources; and
Phase III: Recommendations for roadway improvements that would increase bike safety.
