It’s unconscionable that I-66 was 1) built over Sudley Road and 2) Sudley Road was later widened under I-66 without ANY sidewalk being built.

But it’s downright criminal that 3) those missing sidewalks have not since been retrofit within the I-66 underpass and 4) VDOT and Prince William County have made NO effort to retrofit those missing sidewalks as part of the current multi-BILLION-dollar widening of I-66.

How many more decades will it be before nearby residents will be able to safely walk or bike under I-66 at this location, the only currently available foot or bike crossing of I-66 for several miles in either direction?

How many more pedestrian deaths will it take before our local and state elected officials take action to finally fund and build those missing sidewalks?
