Willingness for Public Comment

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is accepting comments regarding a proposed limited access control change for the Prince William Parkway (Route 234) and University Boulevard (Prince William Parkway Quadrant Road Intersection) project at the Prince William Parkway and Discovery Boulevard intersection in Prince William County.

The proposed change includes a break in the existing Limited Access Line where proposed Discovery Boulevard will intersect with Prince William Parkway. There will be a new traffic pattern due to this proposed Quadrant Road Intersection improvement. This project will involve changes and/or breaks in limited access control.

The improvements propose a new four-way signalized intersection with turn lanes between Evergreen Mills Road, Reservoir Road and Watson Road which will improve traffic operations and safety along this segment of the road. This $25 million project is funded through the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA), proffers and local taxes.
