Motorists can expect major delays in Gainesville this weekend (Aug. 24-25) as VDOT shifts U.S. 29 traffic onto the new bridge and eliminates the at-grade railroad crossing, site of numerous crashes over the years. From 9 p.m. this Friday until noon Sunday, only one lane in each direction will be open on U.S. 29 and Linton Hall Road and some turns will be restricted. Delays of up to an hour can be avoided by using I-66 and U.S. 15 in Haymarket. Message signs will be posted several days in advance of the traffic switch.
