The Virginia Department of Transportation is evaluating potential improvements for the intersection of Prince William Parkway (Route 294) and Old Bridge Road. Also included is about a half-mile of Prince William Parkway between Laurel Hills Drive and Kenwood Drive. A quarter-mile of Old Bridge Road between Prince William Parkway and Titania Way is also included. VDOT is offering a virtual update and comment period on these road improvements.
VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback from home. Learn more about four draft alternatives developed for the Prince William Parkway and Old Bridge Road intersection. View the online presentation and give input and comments by taking an online survey through July 17.
The presentation, survey and more study details are available on the project webpage. Comments can be emailed to [email protected] (please put “Prince William Parkway/Old Bridge Road STARS Study” in the subject line). Or, comments can be mailed to Ms. Michelle Brickner, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
The four potential improvements to the Prince William Parkway and Old Bridge Road intersection include:
- Minor improvements, including signal timing
- Reconfiguring to a “T” intersection
- Converting to a “Thru-Cut” intersection
- Constructing a flyover or interchange
Potential improvements to other signalized intersections within the study area include flashing yellow arrows, high-visibility signal backplates and pedestrian improvements.
This study is being completed through VDOT’s Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program. The program aims to identify cost-effective measures to improve safety and reduce congestion.
This study does not set construction dates for any improvements. It develops proposed improvements that localities can pursue for funding and consider including in their comprehensive plans.
The final study is expected to be complete and posted online this fall.
