The Prince William Board of County Supervisors voted 5-3 in support of Supervisor Frank Principi’s resolution to augment the North Woodbridge Interchange project at Route 1 and Route 123 by allocating $12 million to place utilities underground.
VDOT has allocated $142 Million for Phase I of the Interchange Project, which will widen Route 1 from four to six lanes between Annapolis Way and Mary’s Way. The current project provides a sidewalk, multi-use path, and landscaped median, which is consistent with the Vision of a New Woodbridge. Utility relocation was set to begin in 2014 by replacing the aerial utilities in-kind.
“The other Route 1 projects are all funded by local tax dollars and will have utilities underground. How can we not do this at the Eastern Gateway to the County,” remarks Supervisor Frank Principi. “This is a smart investment that will bring positive impacts on aesthetics, utility reliability, and economic development in the North Woodbridge area. Private investment will follow public infrastructure investment.”
