About the Project

This $14.9 million Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project will build double left turn lanes on eastbound Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) for traffic turning onto Route 641 (Onville Road). Triple left turn lanes will be built on Onville Road for traffic turning onto eastbound Route 610.

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

West of the intersection, Stafford County intends to start construction in 2016 to widen Route 610 to six lanes between Onville Road and Eustace Road.

Construction Update: Jan. 25, 2017

On January 25, traffic on Garrisonville Road will be shifted slightly onto new pavement, just west of the Onville Road intersection.

Two westbound and two eastbound lanes of Garrisonville Road will remain open during the traffic shift, which will begin at 8 p.m. on Jan. 25. All work will be finished by 5 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 26.

Motorists are encouraged to stay alert as they approach the work zone and follow direction from the flagging crew.

Workers are starting final construction activities for the intersection project, which is on schedule to be finished in May 2017. 

Commercial Entrance Changes on Garrisonville Road

After the traffic shift on January 25, crews will start construction of a new raised concrete median on Garrisonville Road west of Onville Road. The median will contain drainage structures.

Construction of the median will permanently change the traffic pattern for several commercial entrances on Garrisonville Road.

After January 25, left turns will no longer be permitted into the Garrisonville Village shopping center entrance from Route 610 westbound. Left turns will also not be permitted from eastbound Route 610 into the North Stafford Medical Park and CVS entrances.

Construction Begins in December 2015

Motorists will observe construction activity starting the week of December 14-18, 2015, at the intersection of Garrisonville Road and Onville Road in Stafford. 

Onville Road traffic will be shifted into a temporary traffic pattern beginning Wednesday, December 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.

Onville Road will remain reduced to one lane in each direction until construction is finished in May 2017. 

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

Pardon Our Dust Meeting: Monday, January 11

A public meeting was held 6-8 p.m. on Monday, January 11, 2016 at Anne E. Moncure Elementary in Stafford County to share construction details on the intersection project, and how travelers may be affected.
