Why It’s Needed

Route 360 west of Route 288 is a congested corridor plagued by heavy delays and crashes during the rush hours. Route 360 carries over 78,000 vehicles a day, significantly more than on Route 288 between Powhite Parkway and Route 360 (60,000 vehicles per day). As growth continues to the west, traffic on Route 360 is projected to exceed 120,000 vehicles per day by the year 2040. This is comparable to the amount of traffic currently on Interstate 95 near Route 10 in Chester.

Data collected with the Route 360/Route 288 Interchange Area Study shows that 30% of the traffic utilizing the Route 360/Route 288 Interchange could be diverted to a new collector road between Brad McNeer Parkway and Bailey Bridge Road.
