Officials Invite Comments on Belvoir Expansion and Route One Base changes could bring more gridlock to the area. By Glenda Booth Mount Vernon Patch (VA) December 3, 2010 Should Route 1 through Fort Belvoir be "improved"? What is "improvement"?People can weigh in on these two fundamental questions and others as the Federal Highway Administration (FHA), the Department of the Army, the state, and Fairfax County decide on the future of Route 1 between Telegraph Road and Mount Vernon Highway.
...U. S. Army studies predict that at least 1,000 new daily vehicle trips will be added to Route 1 north of Fort Belvoir when 3,400 new jobs move to the main post, a stretch of road that today has 37,000 to 56,000 vehicles daily. Most observers expect significant increases in traffic on the highway, a road that today is often gridlocked, as well as nearby roads because of the federal government's Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process. BRAC could also create more contractor and hospital traffic; County officials also predict 1 million visitors each year to the proposed Army Museum in the area.
