PWC to receive $110 million for three transportation projects - one in Dumfries, two in Woodbridge

Three transportation projects in eastern Prince William that county officials say will significantly impact mobility are slated to receive a total of $110 million in funding from Northern Virginia Transportation Authority as part of NVTA’s 2020-2025 Six Year Program.

U.S. 1 Widening in the Town of Dumfries
According to a county news release, NVTA allocated $78 million to fully fund widening U.S. 1 to three lanes in each direction between Brady’s Hill Road and Va. 234, a distance of about two miles. The project will include a shared-use bicycle and pedestrian path along the southbound side of the new Fraley Boulevard alignment and a sidewalk along the northbound side. Roughly 28,000 vehicles per day use that section of road, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation website.

This project also includes widening the bridge crossing Quantico Creek. The county’s news release said this “will reduce congestion, increase capacity, and improve accessibility and safety for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. “Rebuilding and widening the road over Quantico Creek additionally aims to minimize flooding.

Preliminary engineering, rights-of-way, and utility relocation, totaling $52 million, were previously funded primarily by the NVTA, along with some state and federal funding, to bring the total cost of the project to $130 million. Design is ongoing with construction set to start in 2023.

Summit School Road and Telegraph Road
NVTA also awarded $24 million to fully fund the extension of Summit School Road, where it ends at Kinnicutt Drive, to connect with Telegraph Road, north of the Horner Road Park-and-Ride lot entrance. The project also includes widening Telegraph Road between Caton Hill Road and Prince William Parkway. This project will ease traffic and improve flow in the Woodbridge area by relieving commuter congestion in the vicinity of the park-and-ride lot area. The project will also continue a sidewalk and multi-use path along the corridor.

North Woodbridge
Another $8 million from the NVTA will fund North Woodbridge mobility improvements. Annapolis Way will be extended to connect U.S. 1 to Gordon Blvd. (Va. 123). This roadway extension will lay the foundation for the North Woodbridge Small Area Plan internal road network and increase accessibility in this intensive multi-modal area, which includes the Woodbridge VRE Station, I-95, U.S. 1 and the Route 123 Commuter Lot.

According to NVTA, the projects within Prince William County will not only help the county, but the region at large, by improving traffic flow to ease congestion.

The NVTA is a regional body that plans and manages public funds (i.e. tax dollars) for transportation projects designed to reduce congestion throughout the region. Through the new funding program, NVTA’ will allocate $539 million for “regionally significant projects located across Northern Virginia, benefiting Prince William County and the region at large.”

With the adoption of the FY2020-2025 Six Year Program, and implementation of its four previous funding programs, NVTA is advancing 106 regional multimodal transportation projects, totaling nearly $2.5 billion, for congestion reduction throughout the region, the county news release said.
