As part of the transportation process, the Prince William County Department of Transportation (PWC DOT) considered safety impacts to the natural and human environment (environmental analysis), traffic analysis, cost, input from regulatory agencies (e.g., the Army Corps of Engineers), the public and various stakeholders. Based on these factors, alignment alternative 2B was selected.
As the design progresses, the configurations of intersections/interchanges and typical sections will be refined further. The current layouts and sections could be found here but are subject to adjustments. During each advanced phase of design, the latest will be shared and presented to the public for additional input and consideration into the design.
