Welcome to the City of Charlottesville’s website for the Hillsdale Drive Extension project. This site is your source for information while construction of the project is underway and also serves as an archives for all the activities and public involvement that led up to construction.

The Hillsdale Drive Extension Project will provide a three-lane roadway between Greenbrier Drive in Albemarle County to Hydraulic Road in the City of Charlottesville. One section will narrow to two lanes to minimize conflict between two existing buildings and their current uses. On-road bike lanes will be maintained north of Greenbrier Drive. South of Greenbrier Drive, a shared use path will be constructed on the east side of the roadway and a sidewalk will be constructed on the west side. A traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Seminole Court. A roundabout will be built at the intersection of Zan Road. Landscaping and lighting will be used to blend the project and its new pedestrian facilities into the surrounding area.

Design of the Hillsdale Drive Extension project was updated in June 2016. Click on the map for a larger view.
