The county has worked with a local developer to eliminate the “choke point” on Euclid Avenue between Manassas Drive and Liberia Avenue.
According to a release, the two-lane stretch of road has now been widened thanks to the developer of Walker Station, who widened the road as part of a proffer agreement “which saved the county the cost of the project.”
In addition to widening the road to add another lane, the road was divided and turn lanes were added to Osbourn Park High School and area office buildings, according to a release.
“Until very recently, (Euclid) was an hourglass road — a four-lane road in the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park that narrowed down to two lanes as it passed through Prince William County. This created a serious congestion point… By making these improvements to this relatively small section of Euclid Avenue, we can have a big impact on the people who use these roads every day,” stated Coles District Supervisor Marty Nohe in a release.
According to Nohe, there are several transportation projects going on in Prince William to make driving easier and to ease congestion.
“Prince William County is very proud of our road construction program, which has allowed us to take the lead in building some major road improvements throughout the county, including the Prince William Parkway and the current widenings on Route 28 and Route 1. When you look at projects like this (Euclid), we can see major safety improvements and significant congestion relief that can come from relatively small investments,” stated Nohe in a release.
