DUMFRIES -- The Town of Dumfries has submitted a project application to Virginia’s SMART SCALE program, with the intent of widening Northbound Route 1 from a two-lane undivided roadway to a six-lane divided roadway.
The project area is on Route 1 north/Fraley Boulevard between Brady’s Hill Road and Route 234.
According to Claudia Llana, Virginia Department of Transportation Preliminary Engineering Manager, “The proposed Route 1 Dumfries project would extend from Brady’s Hill Road to Possum Point Road, allowing for both Northbound and Southbound traffic to be located on the existing Northbound Route 1.”
