RT. 652 TIE-IN WORK WILL AFFECT TRAFFIC AT RT. 208
Louisa County project to improve intersection alignment nears completion

CULPEPER — Motorists traveling on Route 652 (Kentucky Springs Road) near its intersection with Route 208 (New Bridge Road) should be alert for construction work on Monday, Nov. 29. The realignment of the intersection of Route 652 and Route 208 is nearly complete and some of the final construction work will involve one-lane traffic controlled by flaggers on Route 652 near the intersection.

Once the work is completed the Route 652/Route 208 intersection will line up with the intersection of Route 670 (Oak Grove Drive) and eliminate an angled approach to the intersection that posed a safety concern. Approximately 1,500 feet of Route 652 has been relocated and realigned to improve the intersection approach.

The work to demolish the existing roadway and move traffic to the new alignment is expected to be finished Monday afternoon but may be postponed due to bad weather.

Motorists can get up-to-the-minute traffic and weather information from any telephone in Virginia. Before you travel, log on to www.511Virginia.org for road and traffic conditions and weather updates. Call 800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623) to report road hazards or ask transportation-related questions.
