Crews to Begin Surveying Sections of Rt. 29

Posted: Updated:

Work on improvements to the Route 29 corridor is set to begin soon.

The Virginia Department of Transportation will soon start ground and aerial surveys along Route 29 north of Charlottesville.

Survey and geology crews will be placing big, white markers on the ground to use as targets for the aerial mapping. The areas being surveyed include the Rio Road intersection, Route 29 near Polo Grounds Road, and Hillsdale Drive.

This stems from the Commonwealth Transportation Board-approved plan for Route 29 improvement projects.

Crews will also start drilling in the coming weeks to test the road conditions before construction starts.
