The Route 1 renaming process is moving forward.
In July 2022, the renaming of Jefferson Davis Highway as Richmond Highway is expected to be carried out, according to the Route 1 renaming webpage.
Woodbridge District Supervisor Margaret Franklin asked county staff to start the renaming process in June.
A few months ago, the Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) voted in favor of a resolution that asked the Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board to rename the major road, a request that was OK’d in November.
As part of this process, officials are seeking feedback.
Almost 1,000 businesses and residences are located along the estimated 12-mile section located in Prince William County.
To learn about how the renaming will affect businesses, the Prince William County Department of Economic Development (PWCDED) is encouraging owners to fill out a survey.
Information gathered through the questionnaire, which is available on SurveyMonkey, will help officials create tools for the business community.
It should be completed by January 15.
Survey takers who have questions can email Keasha Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
