More Lane Closures at the Route 250 Bypass

July 21, 2013

More traffic tie ups are expected this week at the Route 250 Bypass. Lane closures will be set up beginning Monday at 6:00 p.m. so crews can continue preparing for utility work across the bypass.

A raised median along the bypass will be removed east of McIntire Road near the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad.

McIntire Road northbound will be down to one lane from Harris Street to the Route 250 Bypass so drivers can be directed to their proper lanes on the bypass.

There will be no closures during main drive times -- that's from 7 to 9 each morning and 4 to 6 in the afternoon.

The closures are expected to cause delays, so drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes when they can.

The utility work is scheduled to wrap up by Friday.
