Drivers in the Park Ridge area of Stafford County can expect the road to remain open to traffic, with occasional lane closures for delivery of equipment and materials

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Drivers in the Park Ridge area of Stafford County are asked to be alert for a work zone starting Tuesday, Aug. 7, to replace two drainage pipes along Parkway Boulevard.

Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and contractor crews will be replacing two deteriorated corrugated metal pipes underneath the road. Each pipe is approximately 60 inches wide and 120 feet long. One pipe is located near the intersection of Parkway Boulevard and Wellington Court. The other pipe is located near the intersection of Parkway Boulevard and Kimberly Drive.

Parkway Boulevard will remain open to traffic during the project. Drivers can expect occasional one-way traffic, directed by a flagging crew, for delivery of materials and equipment at the work zone.

Crews will install plastic drainage pipes to replace the metal pipes.

The replacement is estimated to take 3 weeks to complete.
