A local project could reduce traffic jams in western Prince William County.
Details about the Balls Ford Road Interchange Project will be discussed at an information meeting next month.
Hosted by the Prince William County Department of Transportation, the presentation will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on April 3.
It will take place at Gainesville Middle School, 8001 Limestone Drive, according to a release from Prince William County.
Meeting attendees will learn details about the work, which includes the construction of a four-lane divided road and a bridge that will cross above the Norfolk Southern Railroad.
Officials will also create a 10-foot wide multi-use path and 5-foot wide sidewalk on the east side and the west side, respectively.
“They will see the construction design – where the alignment of the road will be. If they have any suggestions or if they have any concerns, they can let us know,” Mega Projects Branch Chief Elnour Adam said in a release. “If we see any major suggestions for changes, we can look at them.”
Project leaders seek to provide better accessibility to I-66 and improve traffic congestion.
“The Balls Ford Road interchange improvements will contribute to relieving existing and future traffic congestion within the Route 234 corridor, as well as improve traffic operations and coordinate with other planned transportation improvements in the vicinity of the interchange,” Adam said.
The alignment is expected the begin in 2020.
County residents may may give their input at the meeting.
