Reduce Traffic Congestion and Transportation
Maggie will work with community members, state elected officials, and county employees to connect our community with sidewalks, create bike paths, and address road congestion. Maggie will increase the safe routes for our children to walk to school, families could walk to local businesses, and we would create a more community-friendly atmosphere for our residents without disrupting traffic flow. With limited safe routes to schools, our supervisors have put more cars on the roads during commute times. The lack of walkable schools impacts the mental and physical health of our families. For our residents who live relatively close to their places of work, the option to bike to work would improve quality of life, reduce traffic congestion, and improve the health of our residents. She will support increased nature trails and walkable parks, which will contribute to a healthy Prince William County and preserve the natural settings that we all are proud of.
Every year our commute times in Brentsville increase because we do not have sufficient mass transit options and we don’t have enough high paying jobs in our district. Maggie will work to decrease commute time, address traffic issues, and prioritize economic development that will bring high paying jobs to our community.
