Part of Stickley Drive (Route 1085) in Frederick County near the town of Stephens City will close for about three months starting Monday morning, July 13.

Stickley Drive will be closed just south of the intersection with Route 277 (Fairfax Pike) due to utility work and roadway reconstruction related to the upcoming widening of Route 277.

Drivers who use this portion of Stickley Drive will detour west onto Town Run Lane (Route 1012). Signs will direct drivers on this detour route. Residents and businesses along Stickley Drive will continue to have access to their properties.

Stickley Drive is scheduled to reopen in mid-October 2020. All work is weather permitting.
