VDOT project will build additional turn lanes, add pedestrian crossing at intersection in Stafford County

FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists will observe construction activity starting next week at the intersection of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) and Route 641 (Onville Road) in Stafford County, where a project to build additional turn lanes is beginning.

Onville Road traffic will be shifted into a temporary traffic pattern beginning Wednesday, Dec. 16, weather permitting.

Onville Road traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and shifted to the east side of the road. By shifting traffic, construction work can begin on the west side of the road.

The $14.9 million Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project will build double left turn lanes on eastbound Route 610 for traffic turning onto Onville Road. Triple left turn lanes will be built on Onville Road for traffic turning onto eastbound Route 610.

A pedestrian crossing will be installed on the north side of Garrisonville Road, crossing Onville Road.

Most lane closures will be scheduled to occur overnight to avoid peak morning and afternoon travel times.

Motorists should stay alert for temporary traffic patterns, workers, cones and barrels at the intersection. The work zone speed limit is 35 mph.

The project’s estimated completion date is May 2017.

The project contractor is J.L. Kent and Sons, Inc., of Fredericksburg, Va.

Project updates will be posted online at VDOT’s website,
