In Design: Blackburn Road and Rippon Boulevard Traffic Signal in Prince William County

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

The project will install a new traffic signal at the intersection of Blackburn Road and Rippon Boulevard. Based on VDOT's traffic study, existing congestion and crash history at this location warrants installing a traffic signal. In addition, the turn lanes on Rippon Boulevard that have not been in use since the intersection became a four-way stop will be restored as part of pavement resurfacing and restriping.

The project will also provide additional sidewalk connections from Blackburn Road to the shared-use path along Rippon Boulevard.

At the intersection, Blackburn Road averages up to 8,800 vehicles a day and Rippon Boulevard averages up to 12,000.

Estimated Costs
Preliminary Engineering - $396,000
Right of Way Acquisition and Utility Relocation - $75,000
Construction: $1 million
Total: $1.5 million

This project is being financed with federal and county funding.


This project aims to improve safety and operations for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
