Dumfries outlines plans to transform into modern village

Dumfries Mayor Derrick Wood has long said he wants Dumfries to become a destination rather than a pass-through town.

On Tuesday, the Town Council will have an opportunity to solidify that vision with an update to its comprehensive plan that seeks to create an urban village along Main Street, the two-lane thoroughfare that runs in front of the town hall.

Plans to widen a northbound section of Route 1, known in the town as Frayley Boulevard, from two to six lanes, will mean all traffic will use the newly enlarged road section. When the estimated $146-million project is complete, it should ease traffic on Main Street, which today is used by drivers taking Route 1 south.
