Note: The public comment summary from the October 2018 design public hearing is now available.
This project will widen about two miles of Fraley Boulevard (Route 1, primarily in the Town of Dumfries) to three lanes in each direction between Bradys Hill Road and Route 234 (Dumfries Road).
Currently in the Town of Dumfries, northbound Route 1 traffic is routed along the two-lane Fraley Boulevard and southbound Route 1 traffic is routed along Main Street. This project will add through lanes to Fraley Boulevard so it can be converted to three lanes of traffic in each direction with a raised median; as a result, Main Street will be converted to two-way local traffic via new pavement markings. The project will also:
- Construct a shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians along the southbound side of the new Fraley Boulevard alignment, and a sidewalk along the northbound side.
- Reconstruct and widen the Fraley Boulevard bridge over Quantico Creek.
Route 1 averages up to 28,000 vehicles a day within the project limits.
Preliminary Engineering - $7 million
Right of Way Acquisition and Utility Relocation - $45 million
Construction - $78 million
Total - $130 million
The project’s preliminary engineering is financed with federal, state and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) funds. Also, the NVTA has provided additional funding anticipated for right of way acquisition and utility relocation. Additional funding sources are being identified for construction.
This project aims to reduce congestion and improve safety and accessibility for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. Reconstructing and widening the Fraley Boulevard bridge over Quantico Creek aims to minimize flooding impacts and increase capacity.
