Roads across the region will be enhanced in the next few years.
Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is providing $539 million to road projects through its fiscal 2020-2025 Six Year Program.
The funding includes $110 million for three projects located in Prince William County, according to a release from Prince William County.
Widening Route 1 between Brady’s Hill Road and Route 234 in Dumfries is among them.
Three lanes are being added in both directions in the estimated two mile stretch.
NVTA set aside $78 million for the work, which also includes widening the bridge over Quantico Creek, adding a shared-use path on the south side of the Fraley Boulevard alignment, and constructing a sidewalk on the north side.
The Summit School Road extension is receiving $24 million. Ending at Kinnicutt Drive, Summit School Road will be linked to Telegraph Road, north of the entrance for Horner Road Park & Ride.
Officials are also planning to widen Telegraph Road from Caton Hill Road to Prince William Parkway and add a sidewalk and shared-use path.
Community members can provide feedback about the project.
The transportation authority awarded $8 million to updates in North Woodbridge. Annapolis Way will be extended, joining Route 1 and Gordon Boulevard.
