Notice of Temporary Closure of Lansdowne Road April 9 – 27

The City of Fredericksburg will have an emergency road project underway that will close Lansdowne Road to through traffic from April 9-27, 2018.

  • Route 1 and Mine Road
  • Route 2/Route 17 Business (Tidewater Trail) and Benchmark Road
  • Mine Road and Lansdowne Road
