FREDERICKSBURG – Route 620 (Harrison Road) in Spotsylvania County will be closed to through traffic between Route 1 and Lafayette Boulevard over the weekend of June 24-26 for road construction.

Through traffic will not be permitted to travel on this section of Harrison Road from 4 a.m. Saturday, June 24 through 5 a.m. Monday, June 26.

All lanes of Route 1 will remain open during the work zone. Harrison Road west of Route 1 will also remain open to traffic at all times. Residents living on the closed portion of Harrison Road will be permitted to enter the work zone to access their driveways.
