TRAFFIC SIGNALS OPTIMIZED IN PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY
Coordinated signals improve traffic flow

WOODBRIDGE —Motorists will enjoy a more efficient traffic flow after the traffic signals in the western part of Prince William County are re-timed in an on-going signal optimization program. This program is normally performed every three to four years; however, VDOT is accelerating this program to a two-year cycle to ensure the signal timings reflect the changes in traffic conditions.

The VDOT transportation engineers collected traffic data and analyzed the traffic patterns at 106 signalized intersections in the area including the major corridors of Sudley Road and Centreville Road in Manassas; Lee Highway and Route 15 in Gainesville; and Nokesville Road in Bristow. Using that data, VDOT developed multiple signal timing plans for peak and non-peak periods during the weekday as well as the weekend. The optimized traffic signal timing plans were implemented beginning on Saturday, May 16, until Thursday, May 21.

Information in VDOT news releases was accurate at the time the release was published. For the most current information about projects or programs, please visit the project or program Web pages. You may find those by searching by keyword in the search Virginia DOT box above.
