New traffic pattern coming soon on Route 20 at Interstate 64

VDOT will update the traffic pattern on Route 20 (Monticello Avenue/Scottsville Road) at the Interstate 64 interchange (exit 121) in Albemarle County to improve safety and traffic flow.

On May 1, VDOT will update the pavement markings and install channelizing devices on southbound Route 20 near I-64.

Traffic exiting I-64 west will have a dedicated lane on southbound Route 20 and will no longer have to merge. Through traffic on southbound Route 20 coming from Charlottesville toward Keene will use the right lane near I-64.

Motorists should pay attention to the new pavement markings and use caution in the area while drivers adjust to the new pattern.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
