ESTIMATED PEAK WEEKENDS The Shenandoah National Park has mentioned that the peak weekends for heavy traffic onto the Skyline Drive could possibly be October 26th-27th, November 2nd-3rd and 9th-10th.
With this being said, we will have high congestion traffic on the south end of Front Royal during these times. We are a tourism town and the entrance to Skyline Drive is right in our backyard. We are pleading with our local community to find alternative travel routes during the high congestion areas to alleviate your frustrations.
= Plan ahead for this, it's going to happen = Do your shopping during the week = Spend time and shop on Main Street = Commerce Avenue is always less congested = Take lesser traveled roads - not main roads = This isn't everyday, just a couple of weekends = Let's do our part to help share our beautiful landscape = Let's be positive
The FRPD will do everything we can to keep the intersections clear, but we can not magically move the grid locked vehicles out of town or to a different place. ... See MoreSee Less
The leaf peepers are just trying to enjoy what we are blessed to be able to partake of every day. Since tourism is a huge help to our town financially, I welcome the visitors. Thank you to the FRPD for all you do to keep things moving smoothly on the relatively few days of the year when the roads get jammed up.
Yes, it's inconvenient. BUT many of our local businesses rely on the revenue from these tourists. Our local businesses provide jobs to our community. We have many of the wonderful restaurants here in town thanks to tourism. Sales taxes, meals taxes, and lodging taxes flow to our town and county governments and reduce the tax burdens on our citizens. Skyline Drive is a national treasure that right here at our door step. Enjoy it!
I wish I had an alternative route to get off my road but unfortunately I don't. Hopefully the leaf peepers will be respectful and let me off my road this year.
Thank you for sharing
Oh I remember the days of leaf watching ❤️❤️❤️❤️
With this being a known issue is the town going to look into laying out a special traffic route for this?
I lived in Front Royal for 18 months beautiful ENJOY the moment...
Thank You FRPD 👍
Why couldn't they travel the back way remount road to criser and then to skyline drive.
Go park at the brewery and enjoy the leaf color
Hopefully the police will direct the traffic so they don't block the intersection so other people can get out
Also remember low water bridge is closed too!
Don't know why anyone surprised!! It's that time of year !
Just please don’t let them block the intersections!

Hopefully they'll leaf about $21 Million here so we can get back of even money.

On September 18, 2019, the Front Royal Police Department responded to the 800 block of John Marshall Highway for a reported larceny of a motor vehicle. The victim alleged that his 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer was stolen from the parking lot of 7-11 after leaving his vehicle running while he went into the store. Witnesses were interviewed on scene who advised they had observed two subjects, one male and one female, get into the vehicle and drive off.
A description of the vehicle and suspects were given to surrounding jurisdictions while the investigation continued. Detectives retrieved video footage from the 7-11 and confirmed witness statements.
On September 22, 2019, Front Royal Police Department received information that the stolen vehicle was possibly parked at the Hampton Inn in Front Royal. When Officers arrived, the vehicle was located parked in the back lot of the hotel and confirmed to be the stolen vehicle from earlier in the week. The vehicle was towed to the Front Royal Police Department to be processed and stored. The suspects were positively identified as Derrick Aldine Malone and Dakota Leigh Free and both were detained without incident and charged with Grand Larceny for theft of the vehicle. Malone and Free are currently being held at the Rappahannock Shenandoah Warren Regional Jail without bond.

I still remember that day, I took my Mom's necklace to get fixed on Main Street. My Grandaddy, Rex Shifflett, worked at Kibler's Furniture, I went in to see him and he was watching it on TV. He said, "it's terrorists I tell ya". I got home and my Mom and Grandma had already went to get my 2 little brothers out of school. We all sat in the living room and watched the coverage the rest of the day.
At work at GeoDigital Mapping. It came on the radio and all the mapping employees came to my office to listen with tears and utter disbelief. One of our mappers had family in one of the towers.
