US 29 one lane each way in Gainesville this weekend

*vdot-gv.gif

From 7 a.m. Saturday until noon Sunday, US 29 will be one lane in each direction between I-66 and Virginia Oaks Drive. The Gainesville traffic pattern will be moved to allow for construction of road improvements. The project is to take 3+ years.

Traffic on US 29 and Linton Hall Road in Gainesville will be shifted this weekend, Jan. 7-8, onto the recently completed detour roads, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

From 7 a.m. Saturday until noon Sunday, only one of two lanes in each direction will be open on US 29 between I-66 and Virginia Oaks Drive. Left turns at US 29/Linton Hall Road will be prohibited during the switch. Motorists will be permitted to make u-turns at Heathcote Boulevard and Virginia Oaks Drive.

The traffic shift will allow VDOT to begin construction of two overpasses. One will carry US 29 over the railroad tracks. The other will carry Linton Hall Road and Gallerher Road over US 29 and the railroad tracks. The project also includes widening US 29 to six lanes from I-66 to Virginia Oaks Drive.

County police will be stationed at intersections to assist with traffic control. VDOT advises local residents to take detours, to avoid driving on Linton Hall Road or US 29.

The entire project is slated to be done in mid-2015. For more information go to http://www.virginiadot.org.
