Va. Commuters Will Face Many Projects
Virginia commuters will soon find themselves swept up in set of transportation projects with far reaching affects on their daily travels. The Virginia Department of Transportation just issued a status report on what it refers to as the "mega-projects":
I-95 Widening - VDOT will add a fourth lane in each direction for six miles from Newington to the Occoquan River. Construction begins early 2008 and will be completed in 2010.
I-95/Telegraph Road Interchange - Construction of the new interchange will begin in 2008 and be completed in 2012 as part of the Wilson Bridge project.
Beltway HOT Lanes - Under a public-private partnership that VDOT expects will go to financial close by the end of the year, Fluor-Transurban will building two HOV/HOT lanes in each direction from Springfield to just north of the Dulles Toll Road. The project includes adding carpool ramps from the I-95 HOV lanes to the Beltway HOV lanes. VDOT expects construction to begin next spring 2008 and take five years.
Route 7, Tysons Corner - Utility relocation could begin this month in preparation for the proposed Dulles Rail project, VDOT says. The relocation will require closing portions of the two-lane service road between Route 123 and the Dulles Toll Road.
Fairfax County Parkway - The federal government will finalize design and construct the two-mile, four-lane segment between Fullerton Road and Rolling Road, but the start date has yet to be determined.
