Safety Projects
The Prince William County Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Branch administers various safety projects to address speeding in residential communities and to enhance the safety of motorists and pedestrians.
 
Criteria for consideration of traffic calming projects are outlined in the Prince William County Residential Traffic Management Guide. Vehicular and pedestrian projects are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
 
In addition to a multitude of traffic calming requests under review, the Traffic Safety Branch is administering or has completed the following projects:
 
This pilot program will install speed display devices on Hillendale Drive in the Neabsco District and on Vint Hill Road at the limits of the Greenwich community in the Brentsville District.

In January 2016, a study was done to chart the progress of the Pole Mounted Speed Display Pilot Program.  The findings of that study can be found by clicking on this link.
 
 
 
Lomond/Manassas Drive School Crossing Project
The  primary benefit of relocating the crossing is that the new location is an all-way stop condition which is safer for the children and crossing guard. Unfortunately, the new crossing was lacking Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb cuts and pavement markings. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) was contacted and unfortunately, due to funding constraints they were not able to do the requested work. Prince William County Department of Transportation found funding for the project and coordinated with the Department of Public Works to have the job completed.

Dumfries Road Shared Use Path Extension
This County administered project will design and construct a 10 foot wide asphalt shared use path from Country Club Drive to 240- feet south of Exeter Drive along the west side of Route 234/Dumfries Road.  The total length of the shared use path project will be 4,180 feet and will connect to an existing shared use path at Country Club Drive and to an existing shared use path south of Exeter Drive resulting in a contiguous trail along Dumfries Road from Four Seasons Drive to Liberia Avenue/Prince William County Parkway.
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of $2,800,000 for the construction of the shared use path.  This estimate includes design and construction costs and assumes the facility can be built within the existing right-of-way. The project should receive a Federal Lands Access Program grant for the design of the northern section of the project, which runs from Country Club Drive to Fortuna Plaza.  The value of the grant is $500,000.
 
 
Dumfries Road Southbound Dual Lefts at Hoadly Road
This project will expand the existing single left turn lane on Dumfries Road onto Hoadly Road into dual left lanes.  This will be completed by adding a second turn lane into the area that is now currently occupied by a grass median.  The remaining median will be replaced with a raised concrete median. 
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of $984,000 for the construction of the second left turn lane.  This estimate includes design and construction costs, signal modifications, and assumes the facility can be built within the existing right-of-way.
 
 
Southhampton Street Pedestrian Improvements
This project will design and construct 620 feet of standard concrete sidewalk on the east side of Southhampton Street from the Potomac Woods Senior Housing Community to Montgomery Avenue.  Additionally, the project will include the design and installation of two streetlights alongside the proposed sidewalk.
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of $530,000 for the construction of the shared use path and streetlights.  This estimate includes design and construction costs and assumes the facility can be built within the existing right-of-way.
 
 
Horner Road at Summerland Drive Roundabout Analysis and Design
This project will analyze and design a roundabout at the intersection of Horner Road and Summerland Drive.
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of  $38,000 for the roundabout analysis and $105,000 for the design of the roundabout.
 
 
Blackburn Road Parking and Pedestrian Improvements
This project involves construction of a 100 vehicle commuter parking lot at the intersection of Rippon Boulevard and Blackburn Road, extension of the right turn lane, and construction of a 10 foot wide shared use path along Blackburn Road through the parking area and will include curb and gutter work along the entire length.
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of $1,100,000 for the construction of the parking area and shared use path.  The estimate includes design and construction costs and assumes the facility can be built within the existing right-of-way.
 
 
Blackburn Road Shared Use Path
This project will design and construct a 10 foot wide asphalt shared use path on the south side of Blackburn Road from Route 1 to the Neabsco Creek Boardwalk and will include curb and gutter work along the entire length.
County transportation staff have prepared an estimate of $2,100,000 for the construction of the parking area and shared use path.  The estimate includes design and construction costs and assumes the facility can be built within the existing right-of-way.
