Traffic will be reduced to a single lane near the Hope Road/Bells Hill Road intersection in Stafford County

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Route 1 southbound travelers will encounter brief delays tonight and Tuesday morning in Stafford County near the intersection with Hope Road/Bells Hill Road.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) crews will be working just north of the intersection to address erosion near the Route 1 southbound travel lanes.

Route 1 southbound will be reduced to a single lane starting at 8 p.m. tonight. The lane will remain closed through noon Tuesday, March 22.

No lane closures are scheduled on Route 1 northbound.

If additional work is required to repair the erosion, the work zone and single lane closure may resume at midnight Tuesday and continue through 8 a.m. Wednesday, March 23, and again from midnight Wednesday to 8 a.m. Thursday, March 24.

In the event of an incident on I-95 southbound, the work zone can be quickly cleared to allow Route 1 to serve as an alternate route.
