TRAFFIC SHIFT SCHEDULED ON RT. 607 AS PROJECT BEGINS
 

Motorists should stay alert for new traffic pattern, expect delays during morning commute

 

CULPEPER — The Virginia Department of Transportation plans to shift traffic on Route 607 (Matthew Mill Road) between Route 670 (Preddy Creek Road) and Route 29 (Seminole Trail) in Greene County as construction begins on the intersection improvement project.

 

The traffic shift will occur on Feb. 16 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Motorists should expect delays and use caution approaching the area while crews paint new pavement markings. Beginning Friday and for the next few months, early morning commuters should plan extra travel time during this phase of construction.

 

The road will be reduced to two lanes while crews work in the existing eastbound lane. All westbound traffic will shift right to use the current right-turn lane and eastbound traffic will travel in what is presently the westbound through lane.

 

Message boards are in place to notify the public.

 

Under a $1.7 million construction contract, VDOT contractor Fielder’s Choice Enterprises, Inc. of Charlottesville will improve Route 607 to five lanes where it meets Route 29. The widening will provide an eastbound left-turn lane into the Sheetz service center and an additional westbound left-turn lane onto Route 29 south. The project’s fixed completion date is Sept. 6.

Live Streaming of Greene County Board of Supervisors Meetings

As part of the County's ongoing effort to encourage more citizen involvement in the County government process, Greene County will begin live streaming its Board of Supervisors Meetings beginning with the December 13, 2016 Board meeting.

 

Live streaming of the County’s Board of Supervisors meetings represents a good step in the right direction in the Board’s ongoing commitment to open government.  Hopefully it will encourage citizens to become more involved and educated in the local government process by providing the opportunity to view pure democracy in action.  It will also help anyone who is interested stay updated on the County’s priority projects and policies, which in turn can only help Greene County government be more accountable and responsive to the citizens that we have the privilege of serving. 

 

Citizens, business representatives and tourists alike will now be able to watch Board meetings and search meeting archives using a link on the County's website.   

 

Archived videos, meeting agendas/information and approved minutes may also be found on this page.
