About the Project
This project added a third lane to northbound Route 29 from just before Pickwick Road to about a quarter-mile beyond the traffic signal.
The additional lane creates added capacity and makes northbound Route 29 three lanes the entire way between I-66 in Centreville and Union Mill Road. The entire section of southbound Route 29 between Union Mill Road and I-66 in Centreville is already three lanes.
The project also included:
- Paving and restriping
- Traffic signal adjustments
- Grading and drainage
Northbound Route 29 averages about 33,000 vehicles a day.
