Happening Now: October 2015

The Hillsdale Drive Extension project is now fully funded for construction, which is expected to begin in August 2016.  Get the latest news here.


Welcome to the City of Charlottesville’s website for the Hillsdale Drive Extension project. This site will be your source for information related to all of the project activities and public involvement opportunities.

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.  Signals will be installed at the intersections of Greenbrier Drive and Seminole Court with a roundabout constructed at Zan Road.  Landscaping and lighting will be used to blend to blend the project and its new pedestrian facilities into the surrounding area.

As shown in the map below, the design of the project was updated in winter 2014. Click on the map for a larger view. project map
