Construction to begin this spring

RICHMOND—The Commonwealth Transportation Board awarded several contracts Wednesday for road improvements in northern Virginia, including a $43.2 million project to widen more than a mile of U.S. 1 in Woodbridge.

Fort Myer Construction Corporation of Washington, D.C. will construct the project that includes:

  • Widening U.S. 1 from four to six lanes between Mary’s Way and the approach to the Occoquan River Bridge in Woodbridge (about 1.2 mile).
  • Improving Occoquan Road with a median and turn lanes from U.S. 1 to south of Horner Road.
  • Adding through and turn lanes on both roads to improve traffic operations.
  • Enhancing access to the Woodbridge passenger train station for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.

The work is expected to begin this spring and be complete in November 2019.

Utility work is already under way in this area to accommodate the improvements. A future phase, if funded, would also improve the interchange at U.S. 1 and Route 123 (Gordon Road).
The CTB also awarded four contracts worth a total of approximately $45 million for paving on interstates, primary and secondary roads in northern Virginia.

VDOT’s Northern Virginia District includes Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William and Arlington counties (Arlington maintains its own secondary roads).
