ALL WAY STOP COMING TO RAMOTH CHURCH ROAD, KELLOGG MILL ROAD INTERSECTION
Stop signs will be installed on each corner of the intersection in Stafford County on Wednesday, Oct. 19

FREDERICKSBURG – The intersection of Route 628 (Ramoth Church Road) and Route 651 (Kellogg Mill Road) in Stafford County will be converted to an all way stop during the early morning hours of Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Stop signs will be installed on each corner of the intersection between midnight and 5 a.m. Wednesday. Stop bars will be painted on the pavement.

To warn motorists of the new all way stop, “New Traffic Pattern Ahead” signs with orange flags will be posted on all approaches. Flags will also be attached to the stop signs. These warning features will be left in place for approximately one month.

New pavement markings will be painted on Ramoth Church Road northbound to create two lanes approaching the intersection. Beginning Wednesday morning, motorists can choose from a shared left turn and through lane, or a right turn lane.

The all way stop is being installed to enhance safety. A review of the intersection’s crash history found installing an all way stop could reduce the number of crashes and injuries at this location.
