NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN NEXT WEEK ON ROUTE 605 AT ROUTE 29
Triple left-turn lanes will improve traffic flow during evening commute
CULPEPER — Motorists will notice a new traffic pattern next week on westbound Route 605 (Dumfries Road) at Route 29 (Lee Highway) in Fauquier County.
By early Wednesday morning, three left-turn lanes will open for westbound Route 605 traffic turning onto southbound Route 29 toward Warrenton.
Motorists should expect lane closures at the intersection from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday while crews install the new traffic signal and update pavement markings. Wednesday evening is the weather date for this work.
The new traffic pattern, coupled with an updated traffic signal timing plan, is designed to improve traffic flow especially during the evening commute. Approximately 12,000 vehicles travel on this section of Route 605 daily, according to a 2019 traffic count.
As part of the project, VDOT is upgrading the traffic signal at the intersection of Route 29 at Route 605. Motorists should expect workers in the area through late February.
Updates and other real-time travel information can be found on the 511 Virginia website, the free VDOT 511 mobile app or by calling 511 from any phone in Virginia. Local updates are also posted to Twitter.com/VaDOTCulp.
