Delegate Tim Hugo Named Gainesville Hero

September 14, 2012

Due to his tireless efforts on behalf of Western Prince William County to facilitate the installation of a traffic signal at a dangerous intersection, Supervisor Pete Candland is proud to name Delegate Tim Hugo as the latest Gainesville Hero.

The intersection of Rt 15 and Waverly Farms Drive was set to open in 2012, and would provide needed access to two nearby schools, a large church, and would serve as an alternate entrance into Dominion Valley.  However, VDOT would not agree to permit a traffic signal to be installed, even though the developer would pay the entire bill for the signal.  It was clear that this intersection would prove to be a traffic danger, and there were valid community concerns over the additional traffic due to the nearby schools.

In response, Delegate Hugo, though only representing the area in the General Assembly for a month, took action with his staff to remedy this situation.  They immediately worked with officials at VDOT and the Prince William County Transportation Department to fast-track the approval process, and then coordinated with the developer to ensure that the traffic signal was installed before school opened this fall.

Delegate Hugo has served this area with diligence and integrity, and is worthy of being named Gainesville Hero for his tireless efforts to ensure safe roadways for commuters and children in Western Prince William County.
