Woodbridge drivers can expect to see work being done on Route 1 next month.
The first phase of the Route 1 widening project is about to begin.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) has awarded $14.5 million for phase 1, which will occur between Featherstone Road and Mary’s Way.
Workers will install an underground water main and construct an underground duct bank on the side of Route 1 South, according to a release from the county.
The duct bank will house electrical and cable lines.
The second phase is slated to begin the duct bank is completed in late summer or early fall 2019.
As part of the estimated $113 million project, Route 1 will be widened from four lanes to six lanes. Bike lanes, shared-use paths, and a raised median will also be added.
It supports the county’s Strategic Plan, which focuses on the need for community members to have access to transportation infrastructure.
The widening project, which is expected to be finished in late 2021, is receiving funding from the local, regional, state and federal levels.
The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) has awarded $45 million for the project in Dumfries.
