Additional Projects in Fredericksburg District

Gloucester County

Route 17 and Guinea Road Intersection Improvement

Construction is underway at the intersection of Route 17 and Route 216 (Guinea Road) in Gloucester County. On Guinea Road, the existing concrete median will be shifted slightly to allow for the construction of a dedicated left turn lane and a dedicated through lane for traffic approaching Route 17. The project will retain a dedicated right turn lane on Guinea Road. Sidewalk improvements will also be made at the intersection. Project completion is scheduled for July 2024.

King and Queen County and King William County

Route 628 (Dorrell Road/Spring Cottage Road) Bridge Closure

Dorrell Road/Spring Cottage Road is closed at the bridge over the Mattaponi River, located at the King and Queen and King William county line. The road will remain closed until early June 2025. A bridge superstructure replacement project is under design. The bridge closed for motorist safety in March 2023 after a routine inspection found significant deterioration in key bridge elements. A detour route is posted.

Spotsylvania County

I-95 Southbound Exit 126 Off-Ramp and Route 1 Southbound

A second right turn lane is under construction from the I-95 southbound off-ramp at exit 126 onto Route 1 southbound. Route 1 southbound is being widened from the off-ramp to Southpoint Parkway with an additional turn lane. A second right turn lane is being added from Route 1 southbound to Southpoint Parkway. Traffic islands will be installed along Southpoint Parkway as a safety improvement to allow left turns into driveways but restrict through and left-turning traffic exiting from side streets. Additional right turn lane added to Southpoint Parkway to Route 1 southbound. Project completion in Aug. 2025.

Route 3 and Orange Plank Road

Construction started in May 2024 to modify the intersection of Route 3 and Orange Plank Rd. to a new traffic pattern to enhance safety, improve traffic flow, and reduce conflict points. Project completion in summer 2024.

Route 17 (Mills Drive) Overpass Replacement and Widening

Construction started in Dec. 2020 to replace the existing two-lane interstate overpass on Route 17 with a four-lane bridge. Route 17 is being widened to four lanes until just east of the Hospital Boulevard/Germanna Point Drive intersection. A shared-use path, sidewalk, and pedestrian crossing equipment will be added as part of the project. Project completion was scheduled for late Feb. 2024. The project is now anticipated to be completed in late August 2024.

Route 208 (Courthouse Road) and Hood Drive

Hood Drive is reduced to a single lane between Route 1 and Route 208 (Courthouse Road), carrying only northbound traffic. Southbound traffic should follow the posted detour along Courthouse Road and Route 1 southbound. New right and left turn lanes are under construction at an entrance to a future Veterans Health Administration clinic. Additional turn lanes will be built on northbound Hood Drive approaching Courthouse Road. A raised median on Hood Drive will separate northbound and southbound traffic between Courthouse Road and McGowan Drive. Additional sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian crossing equipment will be installed at the intersection. Project completion in late July 2024.

Route 606 (Mudd Tavern Road) Widening

Mudd Tavern Road is being widened to four lanes between I-95 and Route 1. A new secondary access route, Route 2092, will be built parallel to Mudd Tavern Road, and will connect with South Roxbury Mill Road and Dan Bell Lane. Project completion in May 2025.

Lee Hill School Drive and Old Dominion Parkway Mini-Roundabout

Construction is underway to build a mini-roundabout at the Lee Hill School Drive and Old Dominion Parkway intersection. A roundabout traffic pattern is currently in place as construction continues to build the center island and median islands. Travelers can expect lane closures and periodic traffic control directed by a flagging crew as construction progresses. Passenger vehicles can pass through the intersection during construction. Tractor-trailers and oversized vehicles will be detoured for short durations to allow concrete to cure for islands. Mini roundabouts are circular intersections where all traffic moves in a counter-clockwise direction around a center island. Traffic entering the mini roundabout slows down and yields to traffic already inside. Mini roundabouts operate the same way as a traditional roundabout but have a smaller diameter and their paved center island can be driven over by trucks and other large vehicles when necessary. Project completion scheduled for early November 2024.

Westmoreland County

Route 658 (Monroe Bay Circle)

Monroe Bay Circle is reduced to a single travel lane with a temporary bridge spanning Monroe Creek. A temporary traffic signal is directing one-way, alternating traffic. The bridge is a temporary measure to maintain traffic flow while a bridge replacement project is advanced.
