Telegraph Road Drainage Improvement Project in Stafford County begins Monday, July 9
A portion of Telegraph Road will be closed to through traffic for approximately 45 days

FREDERICKSBURG, Va.  – Beginning Monday, July 9, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will begin a drainage improvement project on Telegraph Road in Stafford County.

During construction, local residents will experience one-way traffic in the work zone, controlled by a temporary traffic signal so that access to and from your homes can be maintained at all times.

Through traffic on Telegraph Road will be directed to take Route 1 to Russell Road (approximately six miles). Signs will be posted along the detour route to guide motorists around the work zone.

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

Work is expected to be complete in approximately 45 days.
