ROUTE 20-231 ROUNDABOUT PROJECT BEGINS THIS WEEK
Drivers should plan extra travel time, expect flagging operations during construction
CULPEPER — Motorists should plan extra travel time as construction of a roundabout begins at the intersection of Route 20 (Constitution Highway) and Route 231 (Blue Ridge Turnpike) in Orange County.
Under a $1.8 million construction contract, Chemung Contracting Corp. will convert the existing two-way stop intersection to a single-lane roundabout.
Initial project tasks include installing environmental controls and construction signage.
During construction, drivers should expect lane shifts and flagging operations on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Beginning on March 23, the speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph within the construction limits. Motorists should follow posted construction signs and obey directions from flaggers.
Construction will be complete by Dec. 7, 2020.
