President Signs Into Law Spanberger’s Legislation to Provide $2.5 Million for Minnieville Road-Prince William Parkway Interchange Project in Prince William County

This Funding Will Help Construct a New Interchange to Alleviate Traffic Congestion & Improve Safety

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Biden on Saturday signed into law U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger’s legislation that will provide $2,500,000 for Prince William County to help construct an interchange and additional improvements at the intersection of Minnieville Road and Prince William Parkway.

This investment — which Spanberger secured as part of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate-passed fiscal year (FY)2024 appropriations package — will help construct a Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) at the intersection of Minnieville Road and Prince William Parkway to relieve congestion at the intersection with heavy through traffic and turn movements. This investment will also help enhance access and connectivity to I-95, Potomac Mills, and Dale City. The project funding will also provide for the construction of sidewalk and trail segments to improve safety, increase access for pedestrians and bicyclists, reduce the number of traffic accidents at the intersection, and support economic development plans in the region.

“Alleviating congestion and improving safety are among our top transportation goals within Prince William County. That’s why we are deeply appreciative of the work that Congresswoman Spanberger has done to secure $2.5 million to improve the interchange at Minnieville Road and Prince William Parkway,” said Deshundra Jefferson, Chair At-Large, Prince William Board of County Supervisors. “This is a vital project, and a wonderful example of how local and federal leaders are working together to improve our residents’ quality of life.”

“I’m proud to have successfully secured $2.5 million dollars for Prince William County to make much-needed improvements to keep our communities moving and keep Virginians safe on the roads,” said Spanberger. “Smart, targeted investments to improve our physical infrastructure help grow Virginia’s economy, support local jobs, and connect our communities. I’m grateful for our partners in Prince William County for working directly with my office and me to make the case for this project and secure the funding necessary, and I look forward to seeing these federal dollars make constructive progress in our Commonwealth.”

BACKGROUND

For FY2024, the U.S. House of Representatives allowed for specific Community Project Funding requests — as it did in FY2023. Spanberger worked directly with community leaders in localities across Virginia’s Seventh District to gather community-focused requests for her submissions.

The Community Project Funding process was created to ensure that Members of Congress — in concert with the communities they represent — may submit direct applications for federal funding to support locally planned projects as part of the yearly appropriations process.

To be eligible, projects must be sponsored by local or state government entities or non-profit organizations and must be projects that would otherwise meet the qualifications to apply for federal grant funding. The purpose of Community Project Funding is to ensure direct, local engagement as part of the federal appropriations process. In line with this goal, funding applications needed to demonstrate significant local support for the projects.
