Route 17 southbound restriped near I-95 in Stafford to reduce congestion
VDOT has restriped Route 17 southbound near Interstate 95 in Stafford to reduce congestion approaching the exit 133 interchange.
VDOT has converted the right-turn only lane between the Park & Ride lot at Falls Run Drive and Sanford Drive to a shared right turn lane and through lane.
The new pavement markings means two southbound lanes on Route 17 align with the dual lanes of the I-95 southbound on-ramp sooner.
While the new traffic pattern is in effect, additional pavement markings are needed to the travel lanes, including the 95 shield. Several new signs on the ground will also be installed. Crews will work overnight to complete all construction activities to minimize delays to travelers.
A message board is posted along Route 17 southbound to alert drivers to the restriped lanes.
