Carl D. Silver Parkway will be closed to traffic exiting Central Park at Route 3 in Fredericksburg next Tuesday-Thursday evenings

FREDERICKSBURG – The main exit from the Central Park shopping area in Fredericksburg will be closed overnight next Tuesday through Thursday evenings so crews can relocate a water line.

Weather permitting, traffic will not be permitted to exit Central Park at Carl D. Silver Parkway to Route 3 between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. starting the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 12 through the morning of Friday, Sept. 15.

Crews are moving a water line as part of a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) project to improve safety and operations at the Exit 130 interchange on Interstate 95. Construction began in July 2017 and will be underway through January 2019.

Access to all businesses, hotels and destinations in Central Park will be maintained during the road work. Drivers will be guided by detour signs to use Trade Street and Central Park Boulevard to exit Central Park while work is underway.

Traffic will be able to enter Central Park at Carl D. Silver Parkway during this work zone.

Additionally, the I-95 southbound off-ramp to Route 3 westbound at Exit 130 will be reduced to a single lane between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. starting the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 12 through the morning of Friday, Sept. 15.
