Project Details

Two intersection improvements are planned on Route 1 in Stafford County's Telegraph Road area to improve safety and reduce crashes.

Both improvements are fully funded through the construction phase.

The project is currently in the preliminary engineering phase. This project will be locally administered by Stafford County.

A schedule for this fully funded Smart Scale project is still under development. Dates for estimated construction will be posted to this page as soon as they are available.

Route 1 and Telegraph Road

A traffic signal will be installed at the southern intersection of Route 1 and Telegraph Road in Stafford County, just north of the Aquia Creek bridge. Telegraph Road will be realigned to intersect with Route 1 at a more direct approach to the signal.

Two left turn lanes will be built from Telegraph Road onto Route 1 southbound, and a right turn lane from Telegraph Road onto Route 1 northbound.

Route 1 will be slightly widened to provide space needed to receive Telegraph Road traffic turning left.

A right turn lane would be built on Route 1 northbound for traffic turning onto Telegraph Road.

Route 1 and Woodstock Lane

Slighly north of the improvements at Route 1 and Telegraph Road, additional intersection improvments would occur at Route 1 and Woodstock Lane.

A slotted left turn lane would be built on Route 1 southbound for traffic turning left onto Woodstock Lane.

A raised median would be built on Route 1 to prevent vehicles exiting Woodstock Lane from turning left.

A future traffic signal could be built at this intersection, but it is not currently part of this project.
