The public ought to get a chance to speak to the design of the new U.S. 29 Western Bypass.
Oh, that’s right, they will.
Up to a point.
The Virginia Department of Transportation will not hold a full-fledged public hearing on the design of the bypass now that its northern terminus has been shifted farther north. The public will get a chance to comment during a “citizen information hearing” and during the “draft environmental assessment review period,” said a VDOT spokesman.
