A bypass sure would be nice right now

President Obama is coming to Charlottesville Friday - where I now work.
Fortunately, I work on the west side of town and head west after work. Some of my coworkers won't be as lucky.
There's plenty of road closures in town and on U.S. Route 29 between the city and airport about eight miles north of the rally site. Hope they get out early enough to make it home, and don't have plans on that major commercial strip.
The state has thought about building a bypass around that area for many years, but never could get it done. Tractor trailers still clog the main road.
A completed bypass would give residents an alternate route around the presidential visit. Something to think about in the traffic jam.
