Construction of the southern leg of John W. Warner Parkway, located in the city of Charlottesville and first referred to as McIntire Road Extended, was completed June 10, 2013. The road was opened to traffic on Feb. 5, 2015, in conjunction with the ribbon-cutting for the Route 250-McIntire interchange.
The new 0.4-mile roadway links to a previously constructed northern leg of the John W. Warner Parkway in Albemarle County, originally called Meadow Creek Parkway, providing an alternative route for traffic headed into Charlottesville from the north.
The road is designed as a two-lane parkway with designated bike lanes on both sides of the travel lanes. A 10-foot-wide, enhanced pedestrian trail parallels the road along its entire length, providing a connection between similar paths within the city of Charlottesville and the pedestrian trail that runs from Melbourne Road north to East Rio Road. It will also connect with the nearby Rivanna Trail network.
