TELEGRAPH ROAD TO CLOSE NEXT WEEK IN STAFFORD
Road will close at southern intersection with Route 1 for water line work, relocation

FREDERICKSBURG – Route 637 (Telegraph Road) in Stafford County will be closed to all traffic next week between Route 1 and Route 639 (Woodstock Lane) so workers can relocate a water line.

The road will be closed to traffic from Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Friday, Feb. 22. The road will close at approximately 9 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and will remain closed through approximately 5 p.m. Friday.

Telegraph Road intersects with Route 1 at two locations. The section that is closing next week is located at the southern intersection with Route 1.

Motorists will be directed to use Woodstock Lane to reach Route 1. Detour signs and electronic message boards will be posted on Monday, Feb. 18 to direct drivers.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractor, Corman Construction, Inc., are replacing an 88-year-old bridge on Route 1 over Aquia Creek to improve the infrastructure on this primary road.

Workers must move a nearby water line as part of this project. Telegraph Road must be closed next week so workers can access the tie-in point to the water system.

The $5.5 million bridge project began in December, and will conclude in August 2015. Although single-lane closures will be needed for brief periods of construction, all four lanes of Route 1 will be maintained for the majority of this project.
