Increased development and residential space has undoubtedly increased local traffic congestion. That is why I will place a heavy emphasis on local transportation needs. While I fully support our long-term goal of extending the metro into Prince William County, we need immediate relief that will help Woodbridge residents get in and around Prince William County safely and more efficiently. We can do this by increasing the neighborhoods that our local transit systems service and guaranteeing that route extensions is a priority for our local transportation system’s strategic plan.
We must also advocate for bus rapid transit options up and down Rt. 1. We can do all of this by guaranteeing that revenue from the gas tax benefits Prince William infrastructure.
