CULPEPER — Today, Culpeper County and the Virginia Department of Transportation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the opening of Route 784 (Ira Hoffman Lane), also known as the western outer loop.
The new 2-mile, two-lane connector road, which extends from Route 522 to Route 729, was opened to traffic at the conclusion of the ceremony, just after 2 p.m.
Constructed by VDOT contractor General Excavation Inc. of Warrenton under a $9.7 million contract, the western outer loop was finished nearly 11 months ahead of its scheduled Nov. 1, 2017 completion date. The project’s total value is $17.1 million, equally funded by the county and VDOT.
