Wednesday update at 1:20 p.m.: Traffic slow on Route 29 from Warrenton to Culpeper

SOUTHBOUND RT. 29 TRAFFIC REDUCED TO ONE LANE AT OPAL

Shoulder work will keep one lane closed through afternoon peak traffic



CULPEPER – Due to issues with shoulder work associated with the Opal interchange construction project in Fauquier County, Route 15/29 (James Madison Highway) will be reduced to one southbound lane through approximately 8 p.m. today (Wednesday, Oct. 10)

Major delays during the afternoon commute are expected. Motorists are advised to use an alternate route where possible.

The Virginia Department of Transportation will update message boards at points further north on Route 29 to inform motorists of the lane closure and related congestion.

Shirley Contracting Co., LLC, contractor for VDOT, typically lifts any lane closures by 3 p.m. to accommodate peak afternoon traffic. However, complications with undercutting and replacing the Route 29 shoulder require keeping the lane closed until the work can be completed correctly.

For the latest updates on the lane closure, check VDOT’s traffic and travel website, www.511Virginia.org. The site has real-time road conditions and weather forecasts as well as live traffic camera images for many major highways, including Route 29, Interstate 64, I-66 and Route 250 in Central Virginia.

Motorists can call 511 from any telephone in Virginia for road and traffic conditions on all major highways in the state. Call 800-367-7623 24 hours a day to report highway-related problems or request information about Virginia’s highways.
