The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is gaining another Prince William County representative.
Derrick Wood, mayor of Dumfries, was selected to serve with the organization, which manages funds for road projects that aim to relieve traffic congestion..
He will represent towns throughout the region that have at least 3,500 residents this year, according to a release.
“I am honored by my appointment to the Authority and the confidence that my colleagues have in me,” Mayor Wood said in a release.
Supervisor Marty Nohe, who was reappointed NVTA chairman last month, says the authority will benefit from Wood’s energy and dedication to serving the public.
“He and I already work together closely in Prince William County to prepare for big changes coming to the Route 1 corridor,” Nohe said in a release. “I am excited to be able to work with him at a higher level at the NVTA as well.”
Dumfries is receiving about $45 million from NVTA to widen Route 1, a project that’s included in the Six Year Program.
