Can Route 15 Get Too Congested?

WTOP Radio reported yesterday that "Prince William County has widened part of the roadway [Route 15], but the Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance worries that a 9-mile, two-lane stretch of the road north of Leesburg to the Maryland border could get too congested. The alliance says the Loudoun County portion of the road could carry 40,000 vehicles a day by 2030 -- more vehicles than currently use Interstate 81."

The WTOP report added that the "Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance is criticizing Loudoun County for ignoring its own traffic plan and faults state planners for not stepping in."
