Annapolis Way Turn Lane Closure in Prince William Begins Oct. 2
Detour in place for median construction at Route 1 intersection


WOODBRIDGE – Beginning about noon Wednesday, Oct. 2, the left turn lane from Annapolis Way to northbound Route 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) will be closed temporarily for crews to construct a new median at the intersection as part of the Route 1 widening project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. The closure could last about six weeks.

Traffic will be detoured via southbound Route 1, Route 123, Horner Road and Occoquan Road back to northbound Route 1. 

The $165 million project includes adding a lane in each direction to Route 1 between Marys Way and Annapolis Way (about a mile), a new Route 1 bridge at Marumsco Creek, improvements to Occoquan Road, a shared-use path, sidewalk and other improvements. The project is financed with federal, state and county funding and is expected to be complete in fall 2020. Read more.

Route 1 averages 38,000 vehicles a day in this area.
