Spring 2024 Transportation Update for Stafford County

Making roads safer and alleviating major traffic concerns are priorities for Stafford County. Since the County passed the $50 million Transportation Bond Referendum in 2019, significant progress has been made on selected transportation projects. Voters authorized Stafford to borrow up to $50 million to leverage funding from state and local sources for transportation projects around the county. As well, the County has embarked upon creating its first transportation master plan.

The road bond referendum efforts include eight major road projects and 35 road widening and safety improvement projects within Stafford County. So far, the shoulders of twenty-six miles of road have been widened. This type of project gives drivers more room to pull over if necessary with wider travel lanes and shoulder areas. Portions of Andrew Chapel Road, Cropp Road, Hartwood Road, Kellogg Mill Road, Mountain View Road, Ramoth Church Road, Spotted Tavern Road and Winding Creek Road have been widened. This year, widening is scheduled for Brent Point Road, as well as the completion of Decatur Road in the Fall. Work on Stefaniga Road is scheduled for 2025.

Here is information on the major road projects that are currently underway:

While Stafford continues work on the projects listed in the 2019 Transportation Bond Referendum, the Transportation Master Plan will identify new areas of improvement. The County is committed to improving the quality of its roads for residents.
