We previously told you that slowing down on part of Route 17 in Stafford could mean you'll avoid a ticket. VDOT now tells us it's for a shorter distance.
The new 35 mile an hour limit is from Celebrate Virginia Parkway to StaffordLakes Parkway, near Geico. It has been lowered to make it safer for workers in that zone, as part of the Route 17 widening project. The reduced speed limit will shift from north to southbound lanes as work continues.
