ROUTE 29 NORTH CLOSED AT NEW BALTIMORE
Tractor-trailer, three other vehicles involved; motorists should use posted detour
CULPEPER — Route 29 northbound in Fauquier County is closed at Route 600 (Broad Run Church Road) due to an accident involving a tractor-trailer and three other vehicles.
The tractor-trailer, which was hauling wood chips, has overturned and is leaking diesel fuel onto the roadway. The Virginia Department of Transportation, local police and fire and rescue are on the scene and have closed the road until hazardous materials specialists can perform clean-up. The closure will likely exceed two hours.
A detour has been established for northbound motorists, using Route 600 to Route 676 (Riley Road) and back to Route 29.
