Traffic Delays on Rt. 29 in Hollymead

Contractors will begin to repair a hole on Route 29 South that was caused by a failing pipe underneath the roadway.

Expect lane closures and delays.

The northbound lane of Rt. 29 may be closed as crews set up their equipment to bore underneath the roadway.

It was just less than a month ago the hole reappeared for the third time within the year. VDOT discovered it was something different causing the problem this time. A gap in the ground that was the cause. The two previous times a busted pipe caused the problem.

We're also told drivers may not be able to turn right onto Proffit Rd.

Crews hope to have all work finished in five to six weeks.

The cost of the entire project is expected to top off around $160,000.
