Traffic changes on U.S. 29

Traffic changes on U.S. 29

Beginning September 28, expect nightly closures of the Rio Road crossover at U.S. 29, as a part of a grade-separated intersection project involving excavation and construction of abutments on which bridge beams will rest when they are placed next summer, according to VDOT.

During the closure, Rio Road traffic will not be able to cross U.S. 29 or make left turns onto it, and left turns from the highway onto Rio Road will also be prohibited. Business entrances north and south of the intersection on U.S. 29 and east and west on Rio Road will remain open during the utility work.

All lanes will be restored by 6am each morning. Speed limits between Hydraulic Road and Airport Road on U.S. 29 will vary between 35 and 45 miles per hour and are in effect all day.
