It’s being proposed that money set aside for the western bypass not be taken out of the Culpeper District and sent elsewhere. A draft plan from the Commonwealth Transportation Board allocates $245 million to the Culpeper District to find a solution to Route 29 traffic problems. The draft Six-Year Improvement Program from the CTB was released Wednesday. Final approval of the plan is expected in June. It allocates $13 billion statewide for highway, bridge, rail, bus and bicycle/pedestrian projects. Items are listed for each highway district in the state. For the Culpeper District, which covers our area, $245 million has been set aside for what’s labeled as “Route 29 Bypass development of solution strategy and implementation.” A committee of local representatives as well as members from along Route 29 has been meeting to come up with a solution for traffic flow issues in the corridor.
