About the Project

This project will widen about two miles of Fraley Boulevard (Route 1, primarily in the Town of Dumfries) to three lanes in each direction between Bradys Hill Road and Route 234 (Dumfries Road) in order to reduce congestion and improve safety and accessibility.

Currently in the Town of Dumfries, northbound Route 1 traffic is routed along the two-lane Fraley Boulevard and southbound Route 1 traffic is routed along Main Street. This project will add through lanes to Fraley Boulevard so it can be converted to three lanes of traffic in each direction with a raised median; as a result, Main Street will be converted to two-way local traffic via new pavement markings. The project will also:

  • Construct a shared-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians along the southbound side of the new Fraley Boulevard alignment, and a sidewalk along the northbound side.
  • Reconstruct and widen the Fraley Boulevard bridge over Quantico Creek to minimize flooding impacts and increase capacity.

Route 1 averages up to 28,000 vehicles a day within the project limits.
