Plans Ready for U.S. 1 Improvements at Quantico Corporate Center
– June 5, 2014 11:00 am
NORTH STAFFORD, Va. – The Quantico Corporate Center on U.S 1 in North Stafford’s Boswell’s Corner is growing.
Now home to a group of technology firms, government contractors, and the new Stafford Research and Technology Park, the influx of people the center draws has prompted new transportation improvements for the four-lane highway on which it sits.
Tonight, federal and state transportation officials will present plans for improving the Boswell’s Corner area, where U.S. 1 meets Telegraph Road, which also serves as an entrance to Quantico Marine Corps Base.
Officials say they work to improve the following areas:
- Design turning lane improvements based on the government provided conceptual plan;
- Construct an eastbound Telegraph Road to southbound Rte 1 turning lane, on Telegraph Road West of U.S. Rte 1;
- Lengthen the U.S. Rte 1 northbound left turn lane;
- Provide connections to all driveways connecting to U.S. Route 1 and maintain access during construction.
Tonight’s public meeting is advertised as an open forum exchange between project officials and those who will work to improve the intersection. It will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. at University of Maryland University College at Quantico Corporate Center, 525 Corporate Drive in Stafford.
Project officials have placed documents online for review.
