VDOT Preliminary Plan Shows Gainsville Bypass Through Buckland Mills Battlefield
In August, 2009, VDOT presented the Fauquier BOS with alternatives to Route 29 at Fauquier Countyís northeastern border with Prince William County.VDOT explained that since their meeting with the BOS the prior month, two Prince William County Board of Supervisors suggested two alternatives to Route 29 through Fauquier County:an alignment and extension of Riley Road/Route 676 north into Prince William County with a new interchange on Route 66; or a bypass from U.S. 29 to U.S. 15 that would connect to 29 somewhere east of Broad Run Church Road/Route 600 and west of Vint Hill Road/215.
In a showing of solidarity rarely exhibited by our current Board of Supervisors, the Board conveyed their stout opposition to either proposal, as well as to any infringement upon Fauquier Countyís farmlands to rectify the traffic conditions created by Prince William County.The Boardís message to VDOT was clear:stick to your assigned mission to improve and enhance U.S. 29 without such unacceptable distractions and diversions.
Citizens comments on these recommendations and others proposed by VDOT are invited on Thursday, October 1, 2009 at VDOTís Citizens Meeting from 5:00-8:00 P.M. in the John Barton Payne Community Room, 2 Courthouse Square in Warrenton.Please attend and let your voice be heard.
