Over the course of the past decade Route 29 has been studied multiple times by both the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Fauquier County to evaluate potential safety and operational improvements. (Click here to view studies dating back to 2010). The most recent study included a group of stakeholders from residential and business communities adjacent to or accessing Route 29. A variety of alternatives were considered in lieu of widening Route 29.
Before the County will consider supporting any improvements, we want to hear from the users of Route 29. An outreach meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, beginning at 6:00 pm at Auburn Middle School’s cafeteria located at 7270 Riley Road in Warrenton. It will be an open house format, with representatives from VDOT and the County available with images of what the improvements could include if the County receives community support to move forward with them as well as provide information, hear your concerns, and answer any questions you may have.
