Motorists should be alert for detour route July 11-14
FREDERICKSBURG – Paving work will detour traffic on Route 684 (Staffordboro Boulevard) in Stafford County this weekend.
Staffordboro Boulevard will be closed between Woodstream Boulevard and Alice Court from 7 p.m. on Friday, July 11 to until 5 a.m. on Monday, July 14.
Motorists should follow posted signs along the detour route, which is Woodstream Boulevard to Pike Place to Staffordboro 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 several segments of Staffordboro Boulevard with roller-compacted concrete as a base layer, which can withstand heavier vehicle weights.
Construction of the $12.9 million improvement project is on schedule to open by October 31, 2014.
