Gibson: bypass a ‘joke’

Longtime Daily Progress journalist Bob Gibson branded the Route 29 Western Bypass a 'joke' in his Sunday column: "The short western bypass around Charlottesville was overtaken by sprawl so long ago as to be worthless. Its funeral may never be held, as it would take years to plan, so the joke of a bypass remains on the state's books with barely a penny to its name." The Bypass reared its head again in October when the state attorney general declared that Central Virginians may have to pay for it even if it doesn't get built.

Gibson's not very good a predicting the stupidity of VDOT.
