PIPE WORK TO CLOSE THREE AREA ROADS IN COMING WEEKS
Message boards, detour signs will keep motorists informed
CULPEPER — Working at one location at a time, a crew with the Virginia Department of Transportation will close three roads in Fauquier and Rappahannock counties for drainage pipe replacement work over the next few weeks.
On Monday, April 11, a section of Route 607 (Shenandoah Path) in Fauquier County will be closed between Route 806 (Elk Run Road) and Route 616 (Bristersburg Road) and is expected to reopen to traffic on or about Friday, April 15. Northbound motorists will be detoured via Route 806 to Route 616, which carries traffic back to Route 607. Southbound traffic will reverse the detour.
After completing the work on Route 607, the crew will begin work on Route 649 (Castle Mountain Road) in Rappahannock County. The road is anticipated to be closed April 18 to 22 between Route 615 (Castleton Ford Road) and Route 618 (Laurel Mills Road). During the closure, northbound motorists should follow Route 615 to Route 617 (Castleton View Road) to Route 618, which carries traffic back to Route 649. Southbound traffic will reverse the detour.
Next, the crew will begin work on Route 737 (Conde Road) in Fauquier County, which requires the road to be closed between Route 764 (Olinger Road) and Route 738 (Wilson Road). The work is expected to begin April 25 and will be complete by April 29. Northbound motorists will be detoured via Route 732 (John Barton Payne Road) and Route 738, which carries traffic back to Route 737. Southbound traffic will reverse the detour.
Local traffic and access to driveway entrances will be maintained during the closures and message boards will be in place to provide advanced notice to motorists. All work is weather permitting and dates for the work are subject to change based on the actual duration of work at the preceding locations.
