Additional Projects in Fredericksburg District

 

Caroline County

 

Route 639 (Ladysmith Road) Widening

Construction is underway to widen Route 639 (Ladysmith Road) to four travel lanes between I-95 and just west of Route 1. A new raised median will separate eastbound and westbound travel lanes to allow for improved movement through the corridor. Additional left and right turn lanes will be built on Ladysmith Road at the Route 1 intersection. A shared use path, sidewalks, crosswalks, and pedestrian crossing equipment will be installed. The project is expected to be complete in May 2024.

 

Route 652 (Cool Water Drive) over Polecat Creek

Cool Water Drive was closed to through traffic in March 2022 at the bridge over Polecat Creek, and will remain closed for a bridge replacement project. Significant deterioration was discovered in key bridge elements during a bridge inspection and VDOT closed the bridge for motorist safety. Motorists should follow signs posted along the recommended detour route. Construction is underway. The bridge is estimated to open to traffic in late August 2023.

 

King George County

 

Route 301 and the Nice-Middleton Bridge Replacement Project

Route 223 (Old Ferry Road) over Milford Haven at Gwynn’s Island

Temporary traffic signals are installed on Route 223 at each approach to the bridge over Milford Haven. One-way, alternating traffic will remain in place, controlled by the temporary signals, through April 2023 due to a bridge maintenance project. Bridge openings for marine traffic are suspended through April 2023.

 

Richmond County

 

Route 637 (County Bridge Road)

County Bridge Road is closed to through traffic at the bridge over Cat Point Creek due to damage following heavy rain and flooding in summer 2021. VDOT has accelerated this project to advance to construction as soon as possible. The bridge replacement project has been advertised for construction, and work is expected to begin in December 2022 to early 2023. County Bridge Road will remain closed to through traffic during construction, until the new bridge reopens by April 26, 2024.

 

Route 360 at Rich Neck Road/Mulberry Road

A single eastbound and westbound lane are closed on Route 360 near Route 619 (Rich Neck Road/Mulberry Road) during construction of an intersection improvement project. Both lanes will remain closed until work is complete in Nov. 2022. The project will extend turn lanes to enhance safety and improve operations at the intersection.

 

Spotsylvania County

 

Route 1 and Commonwealth Drive

Be alert for construction activity on Route 1 near the Commonwealth Drive intersection, where work is underway to build a nearly 700-space Park & Ride commuter lot. Be alert for work zone barriers along the shoulders of Route 1, and lanes that are shifted to the east near the Commonwealth Drive intersection. Project completion is anticipated in May 2023.

 

Route 17 Overpass Replacement and Widening

Construction started in December 2020 on a project to replace the existing two-lane interstate overpass on Route 17 with a four-lane bridge. Route 17 will be widened to four travel lanes to just east of the Hospital Boulevard/Germanna Point Drive intersection. Sidewalk, a shared-use path, and pedestrian crossing equipment will be added as part of the project. Improvements will be completed in Feb. 2024.
