CULVERT REPLACEMENT PLANNED ON LORIELLA PARK DRIVE
VDOT will hold a “Pardon Our Dust” meeting Monday, September 29 in Spotsylvania County

FREDERICKSBURG – Construction work is scheduled to begin in October to replace a drainage culvert beneath Route 1387 (Loriella Park Drive) in Spotsylvania County.

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will hold a “Pardon Our Dust” pre-construction meeting on the project at the following time and location:

 

Monday, September 29

6-7 p.m.

Central Rappahannock Regional Library

Salem Church Branch

2607 Salem Church Road

Fredericksburg, VA 22407

 

The public is invited to attend the meeting to meet the construction team, ask questions, review project plans and learn about upcoming traffic impacts.

 

The existing drainage pipe underneath Loriella Park Drive will be removed and replaced with a concrete box culvert to promote better drainage. When the project is complete, new guardrail will be installed.

 

Loriella Park Drive will be closed to traffic at the culvert site for approximately three months during construction, weather permitting. The culvert is located on Loriella Park Drive between Leavells Road and Ascot Circle. Traffic will be detoured to Windsor Drive and Ascot Circle during construction. Signs will be posted to guide motorists through the detour.

 

Loriella Park Drive carries approximately 1,200 vehicles per day, according to a 2013 VDOT traffic count.

 

The project contractor, H2 Site Solutions, will begin to stage signs, materials, and equipment at the work zone in late September. VDOT will announce a precise date for the closure of Loriella Park Drive as soon as it is available.

 

Motorists can call 511, visit www.511virginia.org or use VDOT’s 511Virginia free mobile app to find real-time traffic and work zone information in any area of the state.
