 Ribbon Cutting for Prince William County Parkway


The mission of the Department of Transportation is to consistently improve the transportation network and meet the needs of our growing community.

Our goals include easing the flow of traffic and improving travel within Prince William County; providing transportation options for residents and visitors and creating and maintaining safe traveling conditions.

In order to meet these goals, we work with a wide variety of local, regional, state and federal partners. In addition, we manage Capital Improvement Projects and work with the Board of County Supervisors to find effective solutions that resolve transportation issues.
