TRAFFIC PATTERN TO CHANGE ON ROUTE 29 AT AMHERST/NELSON LINE
Work on Tye River Bridge proceeding

LYNCHBURG – Motorists should be prepared for a change in traffic pattern on Route 29 at the Amherst and Nelson County lines next week, weather permitting. 

American Infrastructures, contracted to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), will pave the newly built crossovers north and south of the bridges over the Tye River and, then, will run one lane of traffic in either direction in the southbound lanes of Route 29.  This traffic pattern will be in effect throughout much of the project to replace the northbound structure.  The $6.7 million project is expected to be complete by late 2012. 

Message boards, signs and other traffic control devices will be in place to alert motorists to the change in traffic pattern.
