The traffic shift begins at 9 p.m. this evening and ends at noon Sunday. Crews need to construct a tie-in to the new bridge and pave and stripe the area, authorities said. In order to do this, some traffic lanes have to be closed.
Only one lane of traffic in each direction will be open on Route 29 and Linton Hall Road and some turning movements will be restricted, VDOT officials said. Police will be at the scene to help control traffic, but it is best to avoid the area by taking Interstate 66 or Route 15.
