A western bypass¬†opponent, current Jack Jouett District supervisor Diantha McKeel (pictured) says they should have the option of taking action following Wednesday’s public hearing on the bypass. McKeel says she might introduce a resolution that endorses the priorities in the Places 29 Master Plan. That¬†plan says the western bypass is not a substitute for improvements within the corridor such as an improved Best Buy ramp, more lanes north of Polo Grounds Road, and building Hillsdale Drive Extended and Berkmar Drive Extended. McKeel’s resolution would readopt and reestablish the board of supervisors’ opposition to the western bypass, but she says it does not call for terminating the proposed road.
