Progress continues on securing Better Transportation for New Woodbridge, as the Route 1 widening project enters a new phase. Route 1 traffic will be shifting onto new pavement Friday, March 2 and then Monday, March 5, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The northbound lanes between Mount Pleasant Drive and Dawson Beach Road will shift Friday beginning at 10 a.m.; the southbound lanes between Occoquan Road and Marys Way will shift Monday beginning at 10 a.m. Both shifts are weather permitting.

Drivers should expect delays and are asked to use caution when driving through the work zones. The work is part of the Route 1 widening project, which is scheduled for completion in fall 2019. When fully complete, the three-phase project will result in the community’s major thoroughfare being expanded to six lanes, along with pedestrian improvements such as improved or new sidewalks, mix-use trails, crosswalks and stoplights with countdown timers. More than $1 billion of public/private investment have been committed to the revitalization of Route 1 corridor in Woodbridge since Supervisor Frank Principi took office in 2008.
