Coming Soon: Route 1 (Emancipation Highway), Hanson Avenue and Princess Anne Street Intersection Safety Project

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) project would modify the intersection of Route 1, Hanson Avenue and Princess Anne Street in the City of Fredericksburg.

The changes include:

  • Modifying an existing median on Route 1 southbound to provide more space for vehicles turning left just after the Falmouth Bridge onto Princess Anne Street
  • Additional pedestrian accommodations would be installed for crossing Route 1
  • A temporary concrete median at Hanson Avenue and Route 1 would be replaced with a new concrete curb and island
  • Left turns from Route 1 northbound onto Hanson Avenue would continue to be prohibited

Construction of these improvements would occur in coordination with a separate project to improve the Route 1 and Fall Hill Avenue intersection in Fredericksburg. Both projects will be advertised through the same contract, and accomplished at the same time.
