Much like people, every road, every highway, has its own personality...its own character

US 1 - Telegraph Road Improvement

US 1/Telegraph Road Improvement focused on potential modifications from Telegraph Road at Marine Corps Base Quantico's Westside Gate to US 1 to improve short- to mid-term traffic operations and safety. The Telegraph Road study evaluated intersection modification concepts and their possible impacts. As a part of this study, preliminary engineering plans, a transportation study, and an environmental review in accordance with the National Environmental Policy and National Historic Preservation Acts, was prepared with the ultimate goal of constructing intersection improvements in the near-term.
