Drivers should reduce speeds, be alert to milled pavement

CHANTILLY—Motorists can expect nightly lane closures and delays on Route 29 in Fairfax as crews continue to mill and pave between the Prince William County line and Pickwick Road. Crews have been working since before Labor Day to repave this 4.5-mile section, which is expected to be complete by Oct. 14, according the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Drivers can expect closures down to one lane from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights. Daytime drivers should also reduce speeds, expect delays and use caution on milled pavement throughout the work zone.

Drivers are asked to use special caution on the following sections, as crews will gradually mill the entire length before repaving:

  • Sept. 19 through Sept. 30: Route 29 southbound from Pickwick Road to just north of the ramp to I-66
  • Oct. 3 through Oct. 14: Route 29 northbound from just north of the ramp to I-66 to Pickwick Road

Portable message signs along Route 29 will alert drivers to the work zone. Francis O. Day Company, Inc., is the primary contractor performing the work for VDOT.
