New road construction project improves access to Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, benefitting wounded warriors, veterans, patients and their families, service members, and civilian employees

The Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County engaged with the Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division of the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration to widen U.S. Route 1 from four lanes to six lanes bordering Fort Belvoir, improving patient access to medical care and helping to accommodate increased traffic in and around the installation and local community.

The highway-widening effort encompassed a 3.7-mile stretch of Route 1 from Telegraph Road to Mount Vernon Memorial Highway, through portions of Fort Belvoir, the Woodlawn Historic District, and other private properties in Fairfax County.  The expansion project included the provision of left and right turn lanes, intersection and driveway access improvements, a multi-use trail for bicyclists and pedestrians on the north side, a pedestrian sidewalk on the south side, and a dedicated 32-foot median for future public bus rapid or light rail transit.

Construction on the project began in May 2014 and was completed in August 2017.
