Public outreach ►
A design public hearing was held at 6 p.m. on January 6, 2021. This was a virtual/online event.
A Notice of Willingness for this proposed project was posted from October 6, 2020, through October 20, 2020.
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.
