U.S. 1 widening among top projects eyed for regional funding

Check out this morning's InsideNoVA.com story on our Six Year Program Update and recommended projects for funding, including the Route 1 widening project in Dumfries, Virginia, as well as the importance of investing in regional transportation projects across #NoVA.

Excerpt:
Backmon said the quantitative side of the staff’s recommendations focuses on bang for the authority’s buck in terms of reduced congestion and travel time.

“We marry the quantitative analysis with the qualitative,” Backmon said. “Some of that qualitative analysis includes geographic balance, modal distribution. It’s important that we’re not overly investing in one part of the region and that they’re pretty balanced modally.”

The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) staff are recommending the regional transportation body award key financing for the U.S. Route 1 widening project through Dumfries.

NVTA is funding an important traffic calming project in the Town of Hillsboro, which is extending the full Route 9 closure to August 15 and ensures no additional full closures in 2020. Hillsboro, Virginia Vice Mayor Amy Marasco says, “Extending the full closure has many benefits for motorists. It moves the project forward, it’s safer and it also minimizes the hassles we’ve already experienced with the temporary water line installation under flagger operations, as that prompted queues lasting as long as 25 minutes because of alternating single-lane travel."
