U.S. 1 near Quantico to undergo study
Federal transportation officials are seeking public input on two studies aimed at improving road conditions at Boswell's Corner and along U.S. 1 from Telegraph Road in Stafford to Joplin and Fuller roads in Prince William County.
A meeting will be held tonight at Hilldrup Moving & Storage at 4022 Jefferson Davis Highway in North Stafford. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m., with a presentation at 7 p.m.
The Federal Highway Administration is heading the studies, with Stafford County and the Virginia Department of Transportation taking part.
One study will cover a six-mile stretch of U.S. 1 from Joplin and Fuller roads to Telegraph Road and will focus on safety and mobility, according to the federal highway officials.
The second study will focus on Boswell's Corner and the west approach of Telegraph Road to U.S. 1, evaluating intersection concepts as well as environmental and historical impacts. The goal of this study is to eventually reconstruct the intersection.
