Motorists urged to use caution

CHATHAM – Motorists using Rte 29 Business at Chatham in Pittsylvania County should expect to encounter changes in pavement condition, delays and heavy equipment beginning the evening of Sunday, May 31, weather permitting.

Adams Construction, Inc., under contract to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), plans to start milling and paving operations on that date. The work should last approximately one week.

Work will begin at Rte 691 north of Chatham and will proceed south on Rte 29 Business through the Town of Chatham to Rte 1403. Milling operations will occur during overnight hours beginning at 6:00 p.m.; however, paving may take place at any time in an effort to minimize the length of this operation.

VDOT and the contractor are working with Chatham Town Police to ensure the safety of motorists and workers. Signs will be posted to alert motorists to these operations and “no parking” reminders issued along Main Street.

Motorists and area residents are asked to be patient during these operations to improve this roadway surface.

For up-to-date information about this and other highway projects and activities, visit or call 511.
