A joint effort between the Counties of Louisa and Fluvanna

Project Summary

The Zion Crossroads Gateway Plan is a joint effort between the Counties of Louisa and Fluvanna to develop a unified vision for the development of the Zion Crossroads area. This effort is largely driven by the tremendous development pressure Zion Crossroads has experienced in recent years. With heavy involvement from the Virginia Department of Transportation, this planning process will include developing solutions to improving traffic safety and flow throughout the area, identifying opportunities for future development, and establishing a unique sense of identity.

Transportation Systems Analysis and Recommendations

The Virginia Department of Transportation has retained the services of the consultant group, Kittelson and Associates, Inc., to conduct a robust transportation system analysis and develop recommendations for improvements. To date, they have completed a report documenting the existing and future transportation system performance and safety conditions.

Draft Plan Documents

The Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission has completed a draft of the Zion Crossroads Gateway Plan.  Kittelson and Associates, Inc. have also prepared a draft of the Final Recommendations for transportation improvements in the local area. The TJPDC held a 30-day comment period for the public to provide feedback on the draft plan documents.  The public comment period closed on November 4th, 2022.  A summary of the public engagement activities and documentation of the comments received are available for review.  This information has been provided to VDOT, Louisa County, and Fluvanna County to inform any future decision-making.
