One lane by Opal interchange to close on Tuesday
On Tuesday, Virginia Department of Transportation will temporarily close a lane of U.S. Route 29 0.15 miles north of the Opal interchange. Workers will repair a culvert there throughout the week, but there should be no further lane closures, since the repairs will be in the median and shoulders of the road.
Other scheduled maintenance and repair in Fauquier County this week:
Route 17 (Winchester Road) – Culvert repairs one-half mile north of Route 823 (Spring Mill Road). Motorists should expect lane closures on Tuesday when materials are delivered to the site. Most work will be done on the median strip and along the road shoulders, but there may be intermittent off-peak hour northbound lane closures.
Routes 17, 29, 601, 626, 688, 709, 710, 712, 724 – Mowing on shoulders, intersections and crossovers. Tractors and other equipment will be shadowed by trucks marking the mobile work zone; motorists should be alert as they approach those vehicles and watch for slow-moving equipment along the road shoulders. Reduce speed and follow traffic controls. Brief delays are possible.
Route 665 (Garth Run Road) – Road closed to through traffic due to washout. Repairs to reopen the road are planned during this week. Motorists should follow detour directions or use alternate routes of travel.
Route 622 (Whiting Road) – Closed to through traffic between Route 762 (Prince Road) and Old Salem Lane (private road) due to a pipe washout. Work to replace the pipe will begin on Monday and the road should be reopened to traffic late Tuesday afternoon.
