The Virginia Department of Transportation closed a section of Tacketts Mill Road in Stafford County to through traffic between Dunbar and Heflin roads Friday because of a drainage pipe failure.
Residents will still be allowed to access driveways on the closed section. Residents can travel as far north on Tacketts Mill as Barrington Woods Boulevard and as far south as the final private entrance before Barrington Woods Boulevard, VDOT said.
According to a VDOT release, signs were being posted Friday to guide motorists along the 3.8-mile detour route.
VDOT said repairs would begin Saturday, but Tacketts Mill Road will remain closed through the weekend. A reopening date was not known Friday.
