Public invited to learn more about project; comments accepted through April 15

CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an upcoming design public hearing on the proposed project to improve safety and congestion at the intersection of Route 33 (Spotswood Trail) and Route 29 (Seminole Trail) in the Ruckersville area of Greene County.  

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, April 5 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Ruckersville Elementary School, 105 Progress Place, Ruckersville.

VDOT staff will be available to discuss the project at the open house style hearing. The public can review project plans, ask questions and obtain information about the project’s timeline, cost and travel impacts, as well as provide feedback on the project orally or in writing.

The proposed project will widen Route 33 on both sides of Route 29. On the east side of Route 29, Route 33 will be widened to provide:

  • Two left turn lanes for traffic turning onto southbound Route 29
  • An additional through lane for westbound traffic crossing Route 29
  • Bicycle lanes and concrete sidewalk

On the west side of Route 29, the project will widen Route 33 to provide two right turn lanes for traffic turning onto southbound Route 29.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2022 and will take about two years.  

Written comments can also be submitted by mail to John Rose, Project Manager, 1601 Orange Road, Culpeper, VA 22701 through April 15. Email comments can be sent to John.Rose1@vdot.virginia.gov.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact VDOT at (540) 829-7500, (800) 367-7623 or TTY/TDD 711.
