PAVING WORK SCHEDULED THIS WEEKEND ON
Motorists should be alert for detour route Oct. 11-14
FREDERICKSBURG – Paving work is scheduled on Route 684 (Staffordboro Boulevard) in Stafford County this weekend, and will affect access to the Stafford Marketplace shopping center.
Two lanes of Staffordboro Boulevard will be closed from Stafford Marketplace to north of Woodstream Boulevard from 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11 to shortly after 12 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 14.
The Staffordboro Boulevard entrance to Stafford Marketplace will be closed to all traffic. Motorists traveling to Stafford Marketplace should use the Route 610 or Prosperity Lane entrance to the shopping center.
Northbound Staffordboro Boulevard traffic will be detoured to Pike Place to access Woodstream Boulevard.
This paving work is part of a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project to add nearly 1,000 new commuter parking spaces to the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot.
VDOT is requiring the contractor to enhance these segments of Staffordboro Boulevard with roller-compacted concrete as a base layer, where construction vehicles will be traveling during the project.
Construction of the $12.9 million improvement project is scheduled to take 16 months, and will open to users in October 2014.
Real-time listings of travel times, work zones, and traffic incidents in Virginia are available on VDOT’s 24-hour traffic information website, www.511Virginia.org. Motorists can also access 511Virginia by calling 511 from any telephone in Virginia.
