Traffic control will aid vehicles turning from East Rio Road

CULPEPER — A temporary traffic signal is being activated on Wednesday, Aug. 31 at the intersection of East Rio Road and Dunlora Drive. The signal will assist drivers turning in and out of the Dunlora community. Traffic volumes on East Rio Road have made those turning movements difficult during heavy traffic.

The signal will be placed into full-cycle operation after the morning rush hour on Wednesday. The new signal will be synchronized with the existing signal at East Rio Road and the entrance to the Charlottesville-Albemarle Technical Education Center. VDOT signal technicians will monitor the signal during its first days of operation and make any necessary adjustments to the timing cycles.

Real-time road conditions and weather forecasts are available on VDOT’s traffic and travel Web site, The site also has live traffic camera images for many major highways, including Interstate 64, I-66 and Routes 29 and 250 in Central Virginia. Motorists can call 511 from any telephone in Virginia for road and traffic conditions on all major highways in the state. Call 800-367-ROAD (367-7623) 24 hours a day to report highway-related problems or request information about Virginia’s highways.
