PUBLIC HEARING TO BE HELD FOR RT. 20-231 ROUNDABOUT
Public invited to learn more about project March 8; comments accepted through March 18

CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an upcoming design public hearing on the proposed project to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Route 20 (Constitution Highway) and Route 231 (Blue Ridge Parkway) in Orange County.  

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, March 8 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Lewis Hall Classroom at Montpelier, 13384 Laundry Road, Montpelier Station.

VDOT staff will be available to discuss the project at the open house style hearing. The public can review project plans, ask questions and obtain information about the project’s timeline, cost and travel impacts, as well as provide feedback on the project orally or in writing.

VDOT proposes to replace the existing two-way stop intersection with a single-lane roundabout to improve safety and reduce crashes. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2021 and will take about one year.

Written comments can also be submitted by mail to Justin Warfield, Project Manager, 1601 Orange Road, Culpeper, VA 22701 through March 18. Email comments can be sent to Justin.Warfield@vdot.virginia.gov.

Anyone requiring special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting may contact VDOT at (540) 829-7500, (800) 367-7623 or TTY/TDD 711.

More information about the project can be found on VDOT’s website at http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/culpeper/20-231_roundabout.asp.
