Road work in PWC rolled on

In an effort to minimize congestion and increase safety on area roads, the Virginia Department of Transportation and the Prince William County transportation office work to improve roads and intersections. However, sometimes these changes take time and can impede traffic flow and add a few minutes, and perhaps a few headaches, to our commutes.

Of course, traffic lights have been added, and timing on those lights has been adjusted. And many locals have seen roadwork here and there. Here’s a glimpse of some of the bigger projects that started, ended or were discussed in 2011.

Work on the Interstate 66-U.S. 29-Linton Hall Road interchange got into full swing and has already resulted in many changes. VDOT is creating detour roads, which follow the same paths as the roads, so it can work on the existing roads. This whole project, which will eventually allow traffic to flow on 29 without stopping at a light at the Linton Hall-Gallerher road intersections, is slated for completion in 2015.
VDOT is also looking at replacing Nokesville’s one-lane Aden Road bridge. A study on that is underway.

In addition, drivers on I-66 now can get a better estimate of how long their travels will take them. Signs estimating distances and times to points on the highway give drivers a pretty accurate idea of how long it will take to get to Interstate 495, for example. Those signs started working in August.

In June, VDOT held a meeting in Manassas to get locals’ input on a planned tiered process that reviews plans for the 25-mile corridor of I-66, from U.S. 15 in Prince William County to the I-495 in Fairfax County.

The completion of the widening of I-66 lanes to Gainesville was celebrated in June.
In Haymarket, Logmill Road is slated to be flattened to create a longer line of sight for drivers.

Road improvements keep rolling on and locals keep finding ways to deal with those changes.
