VDOT gives up on Bi-County Parkway

Prince William County Chairman Corey Stewart has announced that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is no longer pursuing the Programmatic Agreement or the environmental approvals necessary to build the Bi-County Parkway.
 
In order for the Bi-County Parkway project to proceed, funding would need to come from the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) or through VDOT district funding. 

Both of those funding options, however, would require the parkway project to be prioritized over other regional priorities, which Stewart said was extremely doubtful.

“We simply cannot divert the limited funding we have from local and regional priorities to the Bi-County Parkway,” said  Stewart.

He did expressed concern, however, about growing congestion on Route 28 and on local back roads connecting Prince William and Loudoun Counties

“There is currently no good connection between two of the fastest growing counties in America,” said Stewart. “At a bare minimum, Route 28 needs to be improved, and we will be asking the Commonwealth for its support in alleviating this congestion.”
