GTCA Opposes Tri-County Parkway

Welcome to the GTCA blog.

On Wednesday, April 17th, the Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) has approved the location for a new 10.4-mile north-south transportation link that would connect Manassas with the Dulles corridor.  The location of the new road would be north of Interstate 66,  from the I-66 and Route 234 interchange to Route 50 in Loudoun County.  There are many reasons why GTCA members are opposed to the Tri-County Parkway proposal.  It is not a cost effective or prudent use of taxpayer funds and does not address the major transportation problems encountered by people who travel in eastern Prince William County.  In fact, it will make traffic snarls worse for those who commute to Fairfax, Tysons Corner and DC.  GTCA members and those most affected by the project are determined in our opposition to this project.

This blog provides a forum where you can add your comments and help GTCA’s efforts to oppose the Tri-County Parkway as a billion dollar mistake.

    This road is a bad idea. It’s important to let our public officials know how strongly we are against the project. The impact on local neighborhoods and commuter congestion on I-66 and Route 29 will be horrendous. The staggering cost of more than $1 billion will only grow larger and preempt solutions to more pressing transportation needs.
