Find out about plans to widen  Richmond Highway (Route 1)  from four to six lanes between Jeff Todd Way to Napper Road. 
The project will:
  • Widen Richmond Highway from four to six lanes 
  • Provide separate bicycle and pedestrian accommodations on both sides of the roadway 
  • Preserve the median width necessary to accommodate future planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for dedicated bus-only lanes
The BRT will not be constructed as part of this project, but is being administered by Fairfax County as part of the  Embark Richmond Highway initiative.

Route 152  and Route 171. For  more information about Fairfax Connector's bus service and connecting routes please visit  www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/schedules.
