Coming Soon: Route 3 Operational Improvements

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project will enhance capacity and improve traffic flow on Route 3 in Spotsylvania County.

The project will eliminate the right turn lane bump-out areas on Rt. 3 westbound between Route 639 (Bragg Road) and Chamber Drive. This will allow this lane to be used by through traffic and by traffic turning right. 

On Route 3 eastbound, a concrete island at the right turn lane to Mall Drive will be modified, and the right lane will become a shared through travel and right turn lane. Dual right turn lanes from northbound Mall Drive to Route 3 eastbound will be built, controlled by a dedicated traffic signal.
