NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN AT FALMOUTH INTERSECTION SLATED TO BEGIN ON JUNE 8
Paving to take place on Butler Road on Friday, June 5

FREDERICKSBURG – On Monday, June 8, motorists travelling through the Falmouth intersection in Stafford County will be shifted to new asphalt pavement to allow crews to begin construction of the concrete islands on Route 1 and Route 218 at the intersection.

The following changes will take place:

Route 1 southbound: Both existing lanes will be shifted to the right, through the intersection, onto the newly constructed southbound lanes. The existing turning and through traffic movements will remain in place from the new lanes.

Route 218 westbound: Both existing lanes will be shifted slightly to the right onto the new pavement.

Route 218 eastbound: The existing single lane will be shifted slightly to the right onto the new pavement.

The traffic shifts will take place after 8 p.m. weather permitting.

In addition, motorists traveling west on Route 218 (Butler Road) near Route 1 will be restricted to one lane on Friday, June 5.  Crews will be paving the new westbound lanes on Butler Road from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.  In the event of rain the work will take place on Saturday, June 6.

This work is in connection with the Falmouth Intersection Improvement Project.  The project is expected to be complete in September.
