Drainage pipe fails, closes Old Tavern Road in northern Fauquier

Monday, May. 19 | By Julie Taylor
Route 245 (Old Tavern Road) in Fauquier County is closed to through traffic between Route 750 (Harrison Road) and Route 746 (Mount Eccentric Road). A drainage pipe that carries storm water under the road has failed and undermined the asphalt travel surface of the road, according to a press release from the Virginia Department of Transportation.

VDOT is assessing how best to make emergency repairs and reopen the road to traffic. Access is being maintained to private entrances on both sides of the work area. Motorists who use Route 245 are advised to consider using alternate routes while the road is closed.
