OFFSET LEFT TURN LANES AT CLEVENGERS CORNER OPEN JULY 14
New traffic pattern on Route 211 at Route 229 will improve traffic flow
CULPEPER — Motorists on Route 211 (Lee Highway) at Route 229 (Rixeyville Road) in Culpeper County should expect a new traffic pattern next week.
On July 14, or July 15 in case of inclement weather, the Virginia Department of Transportation will switch traffic to the new offset left turn lanes on Route 211 in both directions.
During the switch, which will occur between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., the crossover will be closed. Motorists on Route 229 or drivers exiting the business at Route 211 will need to use the median crossovers immediately east and west of Route 211 for U-turns.
After the traffic switch and continuing until the end of the month, drivers should expect intermittent left-turn lane closures during off-peak travel times for final projects tasks.
The new left-turn lanes will provide better visibility of oncoming traffic and improve traffic flow, particularly during the afternoon commute.
