Drainage pipe installation project will close Telegraph Road at the I-95 overpass in Stafford County for an estimated 45 days

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Motorists are reminded that Route 637 (Telegraph Road) in Stafford County is closing at the Interstate 95 overpass at 7 a.m. on Monday, July 9 to allow crews to install a new drainage pipe underneath the road. 

The road is scheduled to be closed to through traffic for approximately 45 days.

Through traffic seeking to travel to and from Quantico Marine Corps Base on Telegraph Road will be directed to use a detour route along Route 1 and Russell Road, which is a distance of approximately six miles.

Signs will be posted along the detour route to guide motorists around the road closure.

Local residents along Telegraph Road between the I-95 overpass and Route 1 will continue to have access to their homes. Drivers will experience one-way traffic in the work zone during the project, controlled by a temporary traffic signal 24 hours a day.

Crews will be working within the work zone on Telegraph Road on Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. In limited cases, work hours may be extended until 7 p.m.
