PUBLIC MEETING JUNE 28 TO DISCUSS ROUTE 29 IN FAUQUIER CO.
VDOT, county representatives begin dialogue to reach consensus solution for improvements

CULPEPER — Following up on a commitment made last month, officials with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will meet with Fauquier County officials and community representatives to begin a discussion toward solutions to improve safety and the efficient movement of traffic for local and long-distance users on the Route 29 corridor in northern Fauquier County.

The meeting will be held June 28, from 1-3 p.m. at The Barn, Lord Fairfax Community College’s Fauquier campus. VDOT and Fauquier County representatives, along with several community and business representatives, will discuss transportation issues and concerns within the corridor, particularly on the section between Warrenton and Prince William County.

This meeting is intended to kick off a collaborative effort between VDOT, Fauquier County and the community to reach a consensus on strategies for improvements to the corridor and at several intersections where the need for safety and operational improvements have been identified, including Route 215 (Vint Hill Road) and Route 600 (Broad Run Church Road). VDOT officials will be available from 5 to 7 p.m. on June 28 to receive any input from those unable to attend the afternoon meeting.

Both meetings will be held at The Barn, LFCC’s Fauquier Campus, 6480 College Street, Warrenton.
