ROUTE 29 BUSINESS, AMHERST CO. PROJECT MAY CREATE DELAYS
Trench widening will continue into August
LYNCHBURG, Va - Motorists should prepare for potential delays on Route 29 Business from Madison Heights to the Town of Amherst over the next few months. Temporary lane closures will be used during trench widening.
During this work, crews will excavate material along the road’s edges before strengthening and stabilizing the base. The paved widened sections will be remarked when the work is completed.
The purpose of this work is to increase paved shoulders and install rumble strips on the outside edges of the lanes to provide for safer driving conditions.
The project is expected to be complete by August 2018.
