I-95/Route 207 Interchange Improvement Project reaches milestone
Traffic to be diverted to new crossover
FREDERICKSBURG— The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has reached a major milestone on the project to improve the Rt. 207/Rt.652 intersection located at the I-95/Carmel Church interchange in Caroline County.
On Thursday Sept. 2 the relocated Rt. 207/Rt. 652 intersection will open to traffic and the new traffic signals will be fully operational. The old intersection will be closed and the traffic signals will be removed.
The new crossover will provide a safer turning environment for vehicles traveling in the area that is known for its’ high truck volume.
The $5.2 million project began in 2009 and is expected to be complete in November 2011.
Flaggers and signs will direct motorists to the new crossover.
Motorists should be alert to construction crews and equipment and changes in traffic patterns on Route 207 and Route 652 as work continues.
