LYNCHBURG —Motorists who use Route 622, Lynbrook Road, in Campbell County as a cut-thru between US 29, Wards Road and US 460, Richmond Hwy will need to use an alternate route beginning Monday, July 20

The closure was originally set for July 6 and, then, moved to July 13. However, the contractor determined that additional work could be accomplished without closing the road to thru traffic. 

The closure is expected to shorten the time period for which traffic will be impacted by several months. The road is still expected to reopen to thru traffic no later than Tuesday, August 18. 

Thru traffic will be detoured via US 29 and Route 683, Lawyers Road. Local traffic will continue to be maintained throughout the completion of the project. A 35 mph speed limit remains in place. 

The purpose of this project is to improve alignment and reconstruct a wider roadway, within the existing corridor and on new location, as well as realign the road to intersect with Lawyers Road and Waterlick Road.  The entire project is expected to be completed by September 2021.
