Traffic Closure on Sunken Road

TO:  The UMW Campus Community

As part of the University’s Stormwater Improvement Project, the improved storm line behind Marshall Hall will need to be connected to the City of Fredericksburg’s storm line under Sunken Road. This will entail digging up Sunken Road just west of William Street, behind Marshall Hall. University and community traffic will be diverted through the College Terrace neighborhood, as indicated in the attached Traffic Plan. The work will begin Monday, September 8, and should be completed by close of business Wednesday, September 10.

This project is environmentally strategic for UMW, the City of Fredericksburg, the Rappahannock River and the Chesapeake Bay. Thank you for your patience and support.
