The second phase of the Richmond Highway widening will begin at the intersection with Jeff Todd Way and end at the intersection of Napper Road. The proposed project will widen Richmond Highway to three lanes, each direction, from the existing two lanes. Additionally, the widening project is expected to conform with the existing EMBARK Richmond Highway project, being undertaken by Fairfax County, though it is itself distinct.
