RT. 684 (Half Mile Branch Road) CLOSED FOR PIPE REPLACEMENT Wednesday, February 14 thru Thursday February 15, 2024

The Virginia Department of Transportation is replacing a pipe on Route 684 (Half Mile Branch Road) in the Crozet area and will close the roadway between Route 1013 (Harvest Farms Lane) and Roseland Farm, Wednesday at 8 a.m. until Thursday at 3 p.m.

Today (2/14), shortly after 2 p.m., Half Mile Branch Road reopened to traffic between Route 1013 (Harvest Farms Lane) and Roseland Farm. The contractors expected to work through Thursday at 3 p.m. but completed the work in less than half the time they anticipated. The detour utilizes U.S. 250 (Rockfish Gap Turnpike) to Route 691 (Greenwood Road) to Route 691 (Jarmans Gap Road).

One private entrance to Roseland Farm will provide access to local traffic. The work is near King Family Vineyards but will not affect access to the business.
Visit, call 511 or check the 511 Virginia mobile app for up-to-date information on road and traffic conditions. Please check conditions across your entire route as conditions could change farther west and north. 
For questions or to report hazardous road conditions, the public should contact VDOT’s 24-hour Customer Service Center by visiting or calling 800-FOR-ROAD (367-7623).

  • Everyone is encouraged to participate. You may be asked to share what you think, or we may ask for comments from those who haven’t spoken. It is always OK to “pass” when you are asked to share a comment.
  • Listen respectfully, without interrupting. Listen actively and with an ear to understanding others’ views.
  • One person speaks at a time. If you think you will forget an idea or question that comes to mind, write it down.
