A Dumfries Route 1 widening project is moving forward.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) has approved the final plan for widening Fraley Boulevard – also known as Route 1, according to a release from Prince William County.
Project officials will expand the road from Brady’s Hill Road to Route 234 to six lanes and add bike and pedestrian amenities.
Stormwater management updates, storm drainage facilities, and retaining walls are also part of the road work, which seeks to address traffic and increase safety for those walking
The project is expected to be finished in early 2027 and cost about $180 million. SMART SCALE and the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) are providing funding.
A $3.5 million professional services contract was awarded to Rinker Design Associates, P.C. in May.
Last year, Dumfries Town Council and the BOCS began working together. The board signed a Standard Project Agreement (SPA) with the NVTA, as well.
