Big Things Are Coming to Woodbridge!!
Spring is in the air and with it a renaissance is underway in our community! Big things are coming to Woodbridge, including not one, but two Route 1 road widening projects (with sidewalks and trails), continued expansion of Potomac Town Center, two new facilities on the Northern Virginia Community College Woodbridge campus (including a Workforce Development Center), and plans for a one-mile long, 12-foot wide, boardwalk over the Neabsco Creek Wetlands—connecting Rippon Lodge to Leesvlvania State Park! These projects and others are revitalizing our community and bringing our vision of a New Woodbridge to reality! With major changes in sight, I want to bring your attention to some additional improvements that are coming to your neighborhoods.
Our safety is the number one priority. After months of effort, three new streetlights are coming near the PRTC bus shelters near Marumsco Plaza, a speed hump will be installed on Franklin Street in Marumsco Acres, and the deteriorating sections of Neabsco Road will finally be repaved! The recent demolition of the vacant Amoco gas station in North Woodbridge and a burned-down townhouse in Heather Glen are examples of small changes that make a big difference.
Two of our Neighborhood Parks are getting facelifts. Marumsco Acres Lake Park will see a new fishing pier, picnic tables and playground equipment. Neabsco Eagles Park will see the addition of a multipurpose field and maintenance to the parking lot.
Two of our annual watershed and creek cleanups are now complete and the Woodbridge Civic Association is planning the really big annual litter pick-up along Route 1 (please join us for this event)! We have new landscape plantings now scheduled in several locations and the County recently applied an anti-graffiti topcoat to the “Welcome to Woodbridge” sign to protect it from continued vandalism.
We have also opened the new River Oaks Fire Station, expanded Potomac Library, and are adding lights and batting cages at Veterans Park. More is coming, including Potomac Science Center in Belmont Bay, expansion of Sentara’s Northern Virginia Medical Center this Summer and we are currently evaluating a 6,000 seat minor league baseball stadium for the Potomac Nationals at Interstate 95/Opitz Boulevard.
With $1 billion in public and private investment dollars being invested across the Woodbridge District, it is easy to miss some of these smaller improvements. Follow our progress on the vision at: www.NewWoodbridge.org, Facebook, and Twitter!
