[ARCHIVED] VDOT changes traffic pattern on U.S. 29 Bypass

Traffic alert sign

UPDATE: The Virginia Department of Transportation this morning changed the traffic pattern on the Danville Expressway/U.S. 29 Bypass near Barkers Branch. The right northbound lane is now open for northbound traffic. All exits and on and off ramps are open.

Northbound and southbound travel is restricted to single lanes until the temporary crossovers, curbing and barrier walls are removed, clean up is completed, and repairs are made to the southbound bridge.


Motorists who use the Danville Expressway/US 29 Bypass over Barkers Branch near the Dan River in the City of Danville should expect another change in traffic pattern this week, weather permitting.

North- and southbound traffic have been using the southbound lanes while repairs have been underway and the northbound lanes closed.

Paving on the northbound lanes is complete. Pavement marking and guardrail installation will be complete before northbound traffic returns to one northbound lane and southbound traffic continues in one southbound lane. These single lanes will be in place until the temporary crossovers, curbing and barrier walls are removed, clean up complete and repairs to the southbound bridge made.

Signs and other traffic control devices will alert motorists to the changes in the traffic pattern. All exits will be open.
