The Plan for Upperville
Like Aldie, Upperville looks like a highway with buildings on the side, instead of a town with a main street. There is nothing to indicate to motorists that they are in a village except a speed limit sign, which is largely disregarded. The road has been raised gradually over time and has become a barrier to town functions.
“On my morning walk up the highway to the post office, I'm much closer to rampaging traffic than I ever was on the streets of New York.”
John Ross, Route 50 resident, Upperville
It is practically impossible to walk through the village, since the sidewalks have been allowed to deteriorate and motorists drive excessively fast. The Traffic Calming Plan will reclaim the main street of Upperville, make it more pedestrian- friendly, and keep the traffic moving within the speed limit.
