Join us from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27 at James Monroe High School to see intersection recommendations and submit comments

FREDERICKSBURG – The public is invited to learn more about recommendations to improve several intersections along Route 1 in the City of Fredericksburg at an information meeting scheduled for Monday, Aug. 27.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), in partnership with the City of Fredericksburg, will share recommendations from a joint transportation study of Route 1 between the Falmouth Bridge and Route 3 recently conducted through the Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program.

The study focused on proposals to improve safety and operational efficiency at four locations along Route 1:

  • Route 1 and Princess Anne Street
  • Route 1 and Fall Hill Avenue
  • Route 1 and Augustine Avenue/Powhatan Street
  • Route 1 and multiple intersections from Cowan Boulevard to Route 3

No construction dates have been scheduled for any of the recommendations. The study’s purpose is to develop proposed improvements that localities can pursue as funding becomes available, and to consider including in their comprehensive plans.

The public information meeting will be held:
