US 29 Lynchburg/Madison Heights Bypass: Six Months from Completion
Virginia VDOT is projecting December 2005 as the completion date for the Madison Heights Bypass. There has been a total of nine contractors that are on their way to finishing.
The Bypass is East of the existing Route 29 and will have interchanges at 460 in Campbell County near Lynchburg City limits, the South end of the Town of Amherst, at Route 210 and at Route 130.
This should ease the traffic congestion that has plagued Madison Heights, but the impact on local businesses is yet to be foreseen.
