TURN LANE PROJECT ON ROUTE 610, MINE ROAD OPENS IN STAFFORD COUNTY
Intersection improvement on Garrisonville Road is completed on-time
FREDERICKSBURG — New turn lanes have opened at the intersection of Route 610 (Garrisonville Road) and Route 684 (Mine Road) in Stafford County, allowing more vehicles to circulate through the area on each traffic signal cycle.
On Route 610 westbound, a second left turn lane was built to accommodate additional traffic turning onto Mine Road.
Also, a second right turn lane was built on Mine Road for traffic turning onto Route 610 eastbound.
New sidewalk was built along the northbound side of Mine Road, which connects with the existing sidewalk along the eastbound lanes of Route 610.
Pedestrian crossing buttons were added to the existing traffic signal poles at the intersection, and are now operational.
Lane markings were re-painted throughout the intersection to reflect the new traffic pattern.
General Excavation Inc. was awarded a contract for $975,443 to build this project, which was finished on-time by the July 31, 2012 completion date. Construction began in March 2012.
