Public meeting on “Cut the Hills” project on Route 29 in Fauquier County
6:30 to 8 p.m. at Battlefield Baptist Church, 4361 Lee Highway in Warrenton. VDOPT is hosting the meeting to provide information about the upcoming $3.54 million project to regrade the northbound lanes of U.S. Route 29 approaching the Route 215 (Vint Hill Road) intersection in northern Fauquier County. The project will remove two hills that have contributed to significant crashes on that busy section of highway and will require closing the northbound lanes of Route 15/29 between July 8 and Aug. 2 from the Route 676 (Riley Road) intersection to just south of the Route 29/215 intersection, a distance of about 0.9 mile. During that time, northbound traffic will detour using Route 17 north from Warrenton to Interstate 66 at Marshall, then using I-66 east to Gainesville. The closure will not affect southbound traffic and drivers will be able to turn onto and from Route 215 during the closure. Access to private entrances, including the Battlefield Baptist Church, will be maintained during the closure. Chemung Contracting Corp., of Mitchells in Culpeper County is contractor.
