Traffic alerts ►

This project will extend several existing turn lanes on Route 301 northbound and southbound at the intersection with Owens Drive and Bennion Road in King George County.

Lengthening these turn lanes adds storage space for a greater number of vehicles, which is anticipated to reduce delays and congestion for Route 301 through traffic.

The intersection is located near the Gate B entrance to the Naval Support Facility South Potomac at Dahlgren.

Three turn lanes will be extended at the intersection:

  • Route 301 southbound left turn lane
  • Route 301 southbound right turn lane
  • Route 301 northbound left turn lane
