The Virginia Department of Transportation is offering a virtual update and comment period on potential improvements being evaluated for the intersection of Prince William Parkway (Route 294) and Old Bridge Road, as well as about a half-mile of Prince William Parkway between Laurel Hills Drive and Kenwood Drive, and a quarter-mile of Old Bridge Road between Prince William Parkway and Titania Way.
In lieu of an in-person presentation, VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback from home. Learn more about four draft alternatives that have been developed for the Prince William Parkway and Old Bridge Road intersection by viewing the online presentation, and give input and comments by taking an online survey through July 17.
The presentation, survey and more study details are available on the project webpage. Comments can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “Prince William Parkway/Old Bridge Road STARS Study” in the subject line) or to Ms. Michelle Brickner, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
The four potential improvements to the Prince William Parkway and Old Bridge Road intersection include:
Minor improvements, including signal timing
Reconfiguring to a “T” intersection
Converting to a “Thru-Cut” intersection
Constructing a flyover or interchange
Potential improvements to other signalized intersections within the study area include flashing yellow arrows, high-visibility signal backplates and pedestrian improvements.
This study is being completed through VDOT’s Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program that aims to identify cost-effective measures to improve safety and reduce congestion.
Please note that this study does not set construction dates for any improvements, but develops proposed improvements that localities can pursue for funding and consider including in their comprehensive plans.
The final study is expected to be complete and posted online this fall.
