This federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project removed an existing traffic signal at the intersection of Route 17 Business and Short Street in Stafford County. A median was constructed to separate Route 17 Business northbound and southbound traffic from the Short Street intersection to 200 feet west of Route 1580 (Olde Forge Drive).

As a separate effort, a new traffic signal was installed at the intersection of Route 17 Business and Olde Forge Drive in 2020. This signal was installed by private development under permit.
