Route 17 work in Stafford requires full traffic stops

VDOT says Route 17 travelers may experience overnight delays tonight, Nov. 3 through early Friday, Nov. 4 as construction continues to improve Interstate 95 at the exit 133 interchange in Stafford County.

Starting at 7 p.m., one lane on Route 17 between Short Street and Sanford Drive will close.

Each stop may last up to 30 minutes.

Weather permitting, lane closures on Route 17 are scheduled at the following times:

Thursday, Nov. 3 – Friday, Nov. 4

Midnight to 3 a.m. – Full traffic stop up to 30 minutes
