PAVING WORK TO DETOUR TRAFFIC ON STAFFORDBORO BOULEVARD
Motorists should be alert for detour route on weekends of Sept. 20-23 and Sept. 27-30

FREDERICKSBURG – Paving work is scheduled on Route 684 (Staffordboro Boulevard) in Stafford County during two upcoming weekends: Sept. 20-23 and Sept. 27-30.

 

A single lane of Staffordboro Boulevard will be closed from Stafford Marketplace to north of Woodstream Boulevard from 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20 to shortly after 12 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 23, and two lanes will be closed from 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27 to shortly after 12 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 30.

 

The Staffordboro Boulevard entrance to Stafford Marketplace and Woodstream Boulevard will be closed to all traffic over the weekend of Sept. 20-23. All Staffordboro Boulevard traffic traveling to Stafford Marketplace should use the Route 610 or Prosperity Lane entrance. Northbound Staffordboro Boulevard traffic will be detoured to Pike Place to access Woodstream Boulevard.

 

During the weekend of Sept. 27-30, the Staffordboro Boulevard entrance to Stafford Marketplace and Woodstream Boulevard will be open only to vehicles making right turns into, and from, these streets.

 

This paving work is part of a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project to add nearly 1,000 new commuter parking spaces to the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot.  

 

VDOT is requiring the contractor to enhance these segments of Staffordboro Boulevard with roller-compacted concrete as a base layer, where construction vehicles will be traveling during the project.

 

Construction of the $12.9 million improvement project is scheduled to take 16 months, and will open to users in October 2014.

 

Real-time listings of travel times, work zones, and traffic incidents in Virginia are available on VDOT’s 24-hour traffic information website, www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also access 511Virginia by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
