The Virginia Department of Transportation last week said it intends to pave more than 9,000 miles of roadway in the state, as part of a $508 million investment.
VDOT said many of the paving projects are complete, but far more are scheduled in the coming months as warm weather allows it.
Using VDOT’s helpful interactive map, we were able to highlight some of the key paving projects in Northern Virginia this year. The map shows a large number of projects in Fairfax and Prince William Counties.
Let’s examine them by jurisdiction. (Note: If you perform a search of your own, these totals may vary depending on how much you zoom in or out. Also, links to the full list of projects may take a long time to load due to the volume of information.)
