Find information about project-related traffic impacts here: Culpeper District - Travel. The district traffic alert is posted each Friday for work that will occur during the following week.
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection of U.S. 33 (Spotswood Trail) and U.S. 29 (Seminole Trail) in Greene County. Improvements include a raised median with crossovers and additional lanes at the U.S. 29 intersection.
U.S. 33 is being widened on the east side of U.S. 29 to provide two left turn lanes for traffic turning onto southbound U.S. 29. An additional through lane will also be provided for westbound traffic crossing U.S. 29. Bicycle lanes and concrete sidewalk will also be included.
These improvements are anticipated to reduce congestion during peak commuting hours and reduce the trend of rear-end crashes. The dual left turn lanes are also anticipated to prevent traffic queues from blocking the Moore Road / Jennings Loop intersection.
To reduce the trend of angle ("T-Bone" crashes), the project will also include:
- Construction of a raised median along U.S. 33 between U.S. 29 and Moore Road.
- Minor re-alignment of Moore Road and Jennings Loop to provide a single full access intersection.
Construction began in the spring of 2022 and is expected to be complete in the summer of 2023. Periodic lane closures will be required. Access to and from Moore Road from U.S. 33 is temporarily closed for 14 days during construction of underground storm water lines and reconstruction of the Moore Road intersection approach.
The purpose of this project is to improve safety and traffic flow at the intersection of U.S. 33 (Spotswood Trail) and U.S. 29 (Seminole Trail) in Greene County.
