Traffic may be letting up on Route 1 in Woodbridge.
The Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) has approved a $32.7 million contract for the project, according to a release from Prince William County.
Extending 1.3 miles, the section will change from a four-lane undivided road to a divided highway that has six lanes. The work also includes adding a sidewalk and multi-use path.
Construction is expected to begin after the Prince William County Department of Transportation provides a notice to proceed order in early fall and is set to wrap up in summer 2022.
In addition to this project, two other parts of Route 1 will be widened. One section is located in the Town of Dumfries.
The Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) recently approved funds for the widening in Dumfries.
Another area runs from Neabsco Road and Cardinal Drive to Route 234.
