About the Project

This project is adding a third lane to northbound Route 29 from just before Pickwick Road to about a quarter-mile beyond the traffic signal.

The additional lane will create added capacity and will make northbound Route 29 three lanes the entire way between I-66 in Centreville and Union Mill Road. The entire section of southbound Route 29 between Union Mill Road and I-66 in Centreville is already three lanes.

The work also includes:

  • Paving and restriping
  • Traffic signal adjustments
  • Grading and drainage

Northbound Route 29 averages about 33,000 vehicles a day.
