NEW ACCESS RAMP TO ROUTE 666 OPENS APRIL 10
Motorists should use caution while traffic adjusts to new traffic pattern

CULPEPER — On Monday, the Virginia Department of Transportation will open the Route 29 northbound access ramp to Route 666 (Braggs Corner Road/Greens Corner Road) as construction continues on the Route 29-666 interchange project in Culpeper County, near Eastern View High School. 

The temporary access road for Route 29 northbound traffic via Poor Farm Road will be closed and the temporary signal at Poor Farm Road and Cyclone Way will be placed in flash mode and eventually removed.

Motorists should use caution in the area while traffic adjusts to the new traffic pattern.

Route 29 southbound traffic will continue using the temporary loop ramp while crews construct the permanent access ramp.

The $35.3 million Route 29/666 project involves reconstructing the existing intersection as a grade-separated interchange for improved safety and mobility. Work began in May 2015 and is being performed by contractor Chemung Contracting Corp. of Mitchells. The project’s fixed completion date is Aug. 18.
