Each week during the construction season, we’ll be updating this page with information about the progress on the various construction and development projects occurring within the town. Offseason updates (November-March) will be less frequent due to less activity.

Updated 3/12/2022

Several paving and road construction activities are scheduled to occur in Occoquan beginning in early March 2022.  Staff is working to coordinate these activities in order to minimize disruption and provide reasonable notice to the public.

Mill Street Intersection Improvement Project –  Start Date: Monday, March 14, 2022
This project is a grant-funded project coordinated on behalf of the Town by Prince William County.  The project includes installing ADA ramps and crosswalks at Mill/Ellicott Streets and Mill/Washington Streets intersections.  The work will include installing ADA ramps and new crosswalks across Mill Street, Washington Street and Ellicott Streets. Impacts will include access to sidewalks during construction and some road impacts.  This project is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 14, 2022 at the Washington/Mill Street intersection. The contractors will move on to the Ellicott/Mill Street intersection once substantial work has been completed at the Washington intersection.  The work is expected to take a few weeks to complete.  Construction activities will be performed during the day; not night work is expected.  There will be detour signs for both vehicular and pedestrian activities at various points throughout the project – please drive cautiously through the work area and adhere to posted detours and flaggers.

Mill Street Milling and Paving – Partially Completed
On Tuesday, March 8, 2022,  VDOT contractors milled and paved Mill Street from the Ellicott/Mill Street intersection to the cul-de-sac.  This work was intended to address the recurring water issue on that section of Mill Street. Upon initial inspection after completion of the paving work on March 8, additional crowning work is needed and VDOT is aware of the continued water flow issue after paving.  Town staff is working with VDOT staff to correct the crowning issue on this section of the roadway.  Additional construction/paving activities may be pending.  More information will be provided as we work through this issue.
