Give Feedback on Study of Route 123-Old Bridge Road Intersection
View the presentation online and take survey through July 6; learn more at virginiadot.org/WoodbridgeStars

WOODBRIDGE – The Virginia Department of Transportation is asking travelers in Woodbridge to give feedback on a study of potential improvements for the intersection of Route 123 (Gordon Boulevard) and Old Bridge Road.

The study alternatives are assessing constructing a partial or full grade-separated interchange, modifying and relocating traffic signals, extending lanes, access management, and pedestrian, bicycle and transit enhancements to improve traffic flow and safety. At the intersection, Route 123 currently averages 71,000 vehicles a day and Old Bridge Road averages 45,000.

In lieu of an in-person presentation, VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback from home. View the presentation online to learn about draft alternatives developed for the Route 123 and Old Bridge Road intersection, and give input and comments by taking the online survey through July 6.

The presentation and survey (also available in Spanish) and more study details are available at virginiadot.org/WoodbridgeStars. Comments can also be sent to meetingcomments@vdot.virginia.gov or to Ms. Angel Tao, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.

The study is expected to be complete and posted in late summer. Please note that this study does not set construction dates for any improvements, but develops proposed improvements that localities can pursue for funding.

Other Area Studies

Potential safety and operational improvements are also being studied for the adjacent I-95 and Route 123 interchange, as well as the nearby intersection at Route 1 and Route 123. For the study of the I-95 and Route 123 interchange, comments were invited in early spring, while comments for the Route 1 and Route 123 intersection were invited last month.

These studies are being completed through VDOT’s Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program that aim to identify cost-effective measures to improve safety and reduce congestion. The studies are expected to be complete and posted in late summer.
