Rt. 29 southbound lane closing briefly Thursday

The right lane will close near Vint Hill Road from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday while new utility poles get installed.
Southbound traffic on Route 29 near Vint Hill Road (Route 215) will be reduced to one lane from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 25, while Dominion Energy installs new poles to carry utility lines across the highway.

The existing lines will not meet minimum height requirements after completion of the “Cut the Hills” safety improvements on the northbound lanes, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
Thursday’s closure will affect the right, southbound lane from just north of Vint Hill Road south of the Battlefield Baptist Church.

Motorists should be alert for traffic controls as they approach the intersection and follow directional signs through the work zone.
Work on the safety improvements to the northbound lanes continues on schedule. Chemung Contracting Inc. is regrading the northbound lanes to remove two hills that have contributed to significant crashes on that busy section of highway just south of the Prince William County line at the Vint Hill Road intersection. 
The northbound lanes of Route 15/29 will remain closed through Aug. 2 from Riley Road to just south of Vint Hill Road, a distance of about one mile.
Northbound traffic should detour on Route 17 north from Warrenton to Interstate 66 at Marshall, then use I-66 east to Gainesville. The closure affects only northbound traffic; southbound drivers will be able to turn onto and from Route 215 during the closure. Access to private entrances, including the Battlefield Baptist Church, will be maintained during the closure.

Information about the project is available on VDOT’s website on the Route 29 at Vint Hill Road, Fauquier County page. Drivers should check or VDOT’s 511 mobile app for current information about traffic conditions and follow @VaDOTCULP on Twitter for updates.
