Mary Washington Boulevard in Fredericksburg will be reduced to a single lane in each direction during daytime hours at the Hospital Drive intersection for median work

FREDERICKSBURG – Motorists traveling near Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg are asked to stay alert for a work zone at the intersection of Mary Washington Boulevard and Hospital Drive over the next two weeks.

Mary Washington Boulevard will be reduced to a single lane in each direction at the Hospital Drive intersection to allow crews to modify the concrete median.

Lane closures are limited to daytime hours on weekdays. All lanes will remain open on Hospital Drive. Traffic will always have access to the hospital emergency room.

Weather permitting, motorists can expect single lane closures on Mary Washington Boulevard at the following dates and times:

Monday, April 16 – Thursday, April 19

Monday, April 23 – Thursday, April 26

  • 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Friday, April 20 and Friday, April 27

  • 9 a.m. – noon

Crews are reducing the height of the concrete median on Mary Washington Boulevard. Lowering the median will improve sight distance for westbound Mary Washington Boulevard traffic as oncoming traffic approaches the intersection from the Fall Hill Avenue roundabout.
