Changes made to two local roads are improving safety.
Updates were made to Kettle Run Road and Vint Hill Road.
As part of the project, the intersection where the Brentsville District streets meet was finished, according to a release from Prince William County.
Officials hope the intersection makes it easier and safer for community members who are driving by Patriot High School and T. Clay Wood Elementary School.
Sudley Manor Drive, Vint Hill Road and the Kettle Run Road intersection were also widened, according to Richard Windish, the project construction manager.
“The Vint Hill-Kettle Run Road widening has dramatically changed the mobility of our school community here at Patriot High School and T. Clay Wood,” Brentsville District Supervisor Jeanine Lawson said in a release. “It was long overdue.”
Visibility was increased, as well.
“To improve sight distance, the whole intersection at Vint Hill Road and Kettle Run was raised about three to four feet to improve sight distance from all angles, which improves safety and access for the traveling public,” Windish said in a release.
Through the project, crew members installed sidewalks and shared-use paths, and enhanced signal timing at the Kettle Run Road-Vint Hill Road and Sudley Manor Drive-Vint Hill Road.
