TELEGRAPH ROAD TO CLOSE NEXT WEEK IN STAFFORD
Road will close at southern Route 1 intersection for utility relocation work

FREDERICKSBURG – Route 637 (Telegraph Road) in Stafford County will be closed to traffic between Route 1 and Route 639 (Woodstock Lane) next week for several days so workers can install a sewer line.

 

The road will be closed to traffic from Monday, Sept. 9 through Wednesday, Sept. 11. The road will close at approximately 7 a.m. on Monday, and will remain closed through approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday.

 

Telegraph Road intersects with Route 1 at two locations. The section that is closing next week is located at the southern intersection with Route 1, near Aquia Creek.

 

Motorists will be directed to use Woodstock Lane to reach Route 1.  

 

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and its contractor, Corman Construction, Inc., are replacing an 88-year-old bridge on Route 1 over Aquia Creek to improve the infrastructure on this primary road.

 

The $5.5 million bridge project began in December 2012, and will conclude in August 2015.
