State Route 3 traffic alert
There is a broken sewer line 20′ out in Rt. 3 in front of BB&T, across the street from K Mart. To clear the line Spotsylvania Utilities will be forced to excavate Rt. 3 and complete repair tonight. Working with VDOT, County Utilities has delayed starting the repair until the 8:00 to 9:00 p.m., with the exact timing to be dependent upon traffic flow. Spotsylvania Utilities plans to repair the broken pipe and patch with asphalt tonight. The patch will be milled and overlaid later. The right turn lane and two adjacent lanes will be blocked. The right turn lane is presently blocked due to staging and sewer flow management. Only Route 3 eastbound traffic flow will be affected, and there will be traffic flow, just diminished during this work time.
