In preparation for Collectbritain’s upcoming Candidate Forums and election voter guide, we asked you which issue is most important for the 8 contenders for the Albemarle Board of Supervisors and 4 for Charlottesville City Council to address. Your number one response was the Western Bypass.

Here are three specific Western Bypass questions suggested by our readers. Which one is most important to you?

1. What is your transportation plan for addressing growth of our population and traffic congestion in the region?

2. Is the current Western Bypass proposal a sound investment for the amount of traffic congestion it will reduce?

3. If you have an opportunity to insist that federal officials do a cost-benefit analysis directly comparing the proposed bypass to direct improvements to Route 29 prior to spending tax dollars to build it, would you support doing so?
