How do you rate VDOT and law enforcement preparations for the Rt. 29 “Cut the Hills” project?

The $3.5-million project, which started July 8, has forced detours for about 25,000 northbound vehicles each day. The highway approaching Vint Hill Road should reopen by Aug. 3.

Hills project is big project and all of the builders are trying to get this project and they are prepare presentation for this project. I am finding the fastest payout casino list for New Zealand players because mostly New Zealand players are face the difficulties in payout. This project full detail is share in all of the social media sites.

VDOT: Excellent.
Police, week 1: Excellent
Police, since then: Not so much.

It was nice when they were directing traffic at 600/215. Now it's a 30 minute crawl from Ritchie Elementary to the intersection.

During the route 29/ Vint Hill work , and temporary 4-way stop has been installed in Vint Hill at the intersection of Kennedy Rd. & Brooksdie Parkway . Traveling through this intersection multiple times a day , because I work in the are & live on 605 , I feel this should be a permanent addition . Not sure how to go about this kind of request , but though I would start here and maybe Fauquier Now would run with it !!

I can’t speak to the construction project- they’re definitely moving some earth. Hope they hit the timeline. Police have been excellent in directed traffic.

It was brought to my attention that the tractor trailers are turning at the 600 light by the bank and not going to the roadblock.....

I noticed that a VDOT sign says "local traffic only" at one point on North 29, which should mean tractor trailers should be stopped before they get to the roadblock. I saw another tractor trailer getting stopped at C Hunter Richie school yesterday.

Could be worse, but definitely not necessary. I agree with Bonnie C. No one thought that DC would spread out this far, and Dulles was once a ghost town airport, the times they are a changing, and we have to plan 20-30 years down the road, not for next week.

I voted "Fair", because I think they're doing the best they can under the current circumstances, but frankly this all could have been avoided via figuring this situation out when the roads were first constructed - NOT after so many accidents due to a combination of visual obstruction + crazy driving habits.
