Route 1 Improvements
Route 1 Improvement at Fort Belvoir, Fairfax County, VA
To relieve traffic and provide additional safety for ongoing BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) occurring near Fort Belvoir, AMT led the design efforts for a series of enhancements implemented along a 3.68-mile span of Route 1 from the Telegraph Road intersection north to Mt. Vernon Memorial Highway. These improvements generally widen Route 1 from four to six lanes, provide a one-mile new alignment to avoid major property impacts, improve intersection safety, operations and capacity with new traffic signals and acceleration/deceleration lanes, and provide parallel pedestrian and bicycle facilities for the entire length. Additionally, a 32’ median as part of the design allows for future transit.
