SIGN WORK WILL AFFECT TRAFFIC ON I-66 IN FAUQUIER CO.
Single lane closure planned on Thursday between Marshall and Delaplane

CULPEPER — One lane will be closed in Interstate 66 in western Fauquier County on Thursday, Jan. 20  so a contractor for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) can work on highway signs. The left lane of I-66 eastbound between the 22.5 and 26.5 mileposts will be closed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Motorists should expect to encounter minor congestion as they approach the work zone and should follow the directional signs as they navigate through the work area.

Real-time road conditions and weather forecasts are available on VDOT’s traffic and travel web site, www.511Virginia.org. The site also has live traffic camera images for many major highways, including I-64, I-66 and Routes 29 and 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-FOR-ROAD (367-7623) to report road hazards or ask transportation-related questions.
