Most Charlottesville-area residents support a Route 29 bypass around Charlottesville. That’s according to the latest survey from the UVA Center for Survey Research. The results show 62% say a bypass is needed while 25% says it’s not. No opinion is expressed by 12%. The UVA researchers say support is still there, but there’s been a decline in support since the last survey that was taken two years ago. As far as the road known as the western bypass, 53% favor construction, 30% are against it, and 17% have no opinion.  Among Charlottesville and Albemarle residents, 58% favor construction of the western bypass. The survey involved more than 900 residents of the city of Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson.
