17 December 2001, the Board of Supervisors directed, by
resolution, that the Planning Commission conduct a public hearing
and provide recommendations regarding the removal of the Route
28/17 Interchange from the Bealeton Service District
Transportation Plan, as contained in Chapter Ten of the
Bealeton Service District Transportation Plan
(Map 10.3) is enclosed.
The Route 28/17 interchange for the marked rural principal
arterial and the interchange on Route 17 south of the rail line
(extension of Route 805) shown on the existing plan map are both
recommended for removal from the plan.
Note that the Citizen Committee service district plan
amendments for Bealeton, Opal and Remington are currently being
drafted, and will present a more comprehensive transportation plan
for Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors consideration and
action in 2002. In
the interim, removal of both interchanges is essential so Virginia
Department of Transportation, property owners and developers
clearly understand that neither facility is desired at those
Board of Supervisors conducted a public hearing on April 15, 2002
regarding the plan amendment, and approved the removal of the
Route17/28 interchange from the Bealeton Service District Plan.
However, a decision on the proposed removal of the
designated interchange at Route 17/805 Extended was postponed due
to an advertising error, which has been corrected.
