Under Construction: Route 1 (Patriot Highway) and Route 1489 (Market Street) Intersection Improvements

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project is being federally funded by the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), which seeks to improve safety and reduce highway crashes, and the fatalities and injuries that can result from them.

This project will expand the Route 1 and Market Street intersection by providing triple left turn lanes from westbound Market Street to Route 1 southbound. A fourth lane on westbound Market Street will be a shared through/right turn lane.

Sidewalk will be extended along westbound Market Street to provide a continuous pedestrian route between Route 1234 (Spotsylvania Avenue) and Route 1.

Improvements on Route 1 southbound will create an additional lane at the intersection that will be a shared through/right turn lane, tying into the Interstate 95 northbound on-ramp south of the intersection.

Sidewalks will be constructed in the area of improvement along Route 1 southbound and for a short area on Route 1 northbound at the intersection.

Crosswalks will be added spanning Market Street and Route 1 at the intersection, controlled by pedestrian crossing signal equipment.
