USBR 1 Changes in Northern Virginia District

The alignment of United States Bicycle Route 1 has been updated. U.S. Bike Route 1 was established in 1982. Due to new development in Northern Virginia, the routing of USBR 1 was re-evaluated. 

The project study area extended from the 14th Street Bridge in Arlington County to the southern boundary of Prince William County. The summary report is provided below. A signing plan is also available below. 

The changes were submitted to AASHTO in October 2014 and subsequently approved. The new route is shown on the map below.
