With an increase in population and job growth, officials in Fairfax County are working to alleviate traffic congestion.
To help ease traffic conditions the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority has approved Route 28 improvements and Fairfax County Parkway improvements totaling more than $164,704,670. At the same time, V-DOT is working to transform I-66, widening the roads, and adding express lanes, park and ride lots and new bike and pedestrian facilities.
“Population is growing, employment is growing so the congestion we face today is going to be a lot worse 20 years from now,” said Keith Jasper, Principal, Transportation Planning and Programming with the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority
So far the NVTA has allocated funding for 122 projects in Northern Virginia totaling about $2 billion.
