THROUGH TRUCK RESTRICTION APPROVED FOR SPRING VALLEY DRIVE, SPRINGKNOLL CIRCLE
Signs will be posted on two residential streets located between Route 1 and Forbes Street in Stafford County

FREDERICKSBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has approved a through truck restriction for two residential streets in the Falmouth area of Stafford County, Route 1040 (Spring Valley Drive) and Route 1042 (Springknoll Circle).

 

Through trucks will no longer be permitted to use Spring Valley Drive and Springknoll Circle to travel between Route 1 and Route 627 (Forbes Street).

 

Spring Valley Drive and Springknoll Circle have a posted 25 mph speed limit. Due to the narrow width of these roads, and the limited turning radius at each intersection, trucks must exercise caution at intersections. Under this restriction, only trucks with business along these routes will be permitted to travel these streets.

 

Signs communicating the through truck restriction will be posted on Route 1, and at the intersection of Springknoll Circle and Forbes Street. 

 

(END)
