HERRING CREEK ROAD IN KING WILLIAM COUNTY NOW OPEN AFTER PIPE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
Detour has been lifted after crews installed new concrete pipes near Dorrell Creek

FREDERICKSBURG – Route 604 (Herring Creek Road) near Dorrell Creek in King William County is now open to traffic after a drainage pipe replacement project.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) closed Herring Creek Road in late March between Route 628 (Dorrell Road) and Route 609 (Smokey Road). Crews removed the deteriorated corrugated metal pipes from underneath the road near Dorrell Creek and installed new concrete pipes and end walls.

Weather delayed the project’s original completion date earlier this month. Today, crews lifted the 8-mile detour and opened the road to traffic. Message boards and other signage will be removed later this week.

Herring Creek Road carries an average of 220 vehicles a day, according to a 2016 VDOT traffic count.
