VDOT TO HOLD MEETING ON ROUTE 606 (MUDD TAVERN ROAD) PROJECTS IN SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY
Public is invited to review proposed bridge, road designs and submit comments

FREDERICKSBURG—The public is invited to attend a joint design public hearing and information meeting next week for three separate bridge and road projects located along Route 606 (Mudd Tavern Road) in the Thornburg area of Spotsylvania County.

 

The design public hearing and information meeting will be held:

 

Tuesday, May 20

5-7 p.m.

Riverview Elementary School

7001 Roxbury Mill Road

Spotsylvania, VA 22553

 

Stop by anytime between 5-7 p.m. to meet with Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) staff to view proposed design plans and maps, ask questions, and provide comment on the projects. There will be no formal presentation.

 

Design Public Hearing: Route 606 Bridge Replacement

 

A design public hearing will be held on a proposed project to replace the existing Interstate 95 overpass on Mudd Tavern Road with a wider, four-lane bridge. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in late summer 2015.

 

Information Meeting: Route 606 Improvements East, West of I-95

 

Additionally, VDOT will present information on two proposed projects that would make improvements to Mudd Tavern Road east and west of I-95. These projects are design concepts only, with no scheduled construction date at this time.

 

West of I-95, VDOT is proposing to widen Mudd Tavern Road from two lanes to four lanes to the intersection of Route 1.

 

East of I-95, VDOT is proposing to widen the roadway from two to four lanes, and add two roundabouts to accommodate congestion and traffic volumes near the interstate’s ramps. The project would also relocate Mallard Road to intersect further east with Mudd Tavern Road.

 

VDOT is seeking public input as design work continues on these projects east and west of I-95. A design public hearing would be held for both projects prior to construction.
