Public invited to learn more about project; comments accepted through May 9

CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an upcoming design public hearing for the proposed project to reconstruct the existing stop sign-controlled intersection of Route 3 (Germanna Highway) and McDevitt Drive in the town of Culpeper as a roundabout.

The public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, April 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the VDOT Culpeper District office auditorium, 1601 Orange Road, Culpeper.

In the intersection’s current configuration, traffic turning from McDevitt Drive onto Route 3 is controlled by a stop sign, while traffic on Route 3 is free-flowing. This proposed project, which is fully funded through the state’s SMART SCALE process, will reconstruct the intersection as a single-lane roundabout to enhance safety and improve traffic flow.

At the open house style-hearing, VDOT staff will be available to discuss the project and answer questions. 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.

Construction is expected to begin in winter 2025.  

Written comments can also be submitted by mail to Justin Cooner, Project Manager, 1601 Orange Road, Culpeper, VA 22701 through May 9. Email comments can be sent to Justin.Cooner@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.
