Helpful Tips: Reviewing the Status Report
- The project status report is organized by District. Within each District the projects are listed in alphabetical order.
- Roads that are more commonly recognized by their route number are listed by Route #. For example, projects involving Leesburg Pike are labeled as Route 7 and would be found in the "Rs".
- Interstate projects will be found in the "Is" These include: I-66, I-95, I-395, I-495.
- Each project is identified by type in the bottom left corner as one of the following:
- INT = Interstate Project PRI = Primary Road (Rte. 1- 599)
- SEC = Secondary Road (Rte. 600+)
- TRAN = Transit Project
- PED/BIKE = Pedestrian and/or Bicycle Project
- When searching for a project in the electronic document use "Ctrl+F" to open the Find tool. You can use this tool to search for a project using information you know. For example, you could use the tool to search for all pedestrian and/or bicycle projects by pressing "Ctrl+F" and typing in "ped/bike" This will allow you to find all pedestrian and/or bicycle projects in the report regardless of the district or route number.
- You can also view the Project Status Report Legend and the Projects organized by route number here.
- Projects not located along a road can be found at the end of the report and are designated with route number "XXXXX"
- Interstate projects are listed after all of the projects on numbered routes because they are labeled I-66, I-95, I-395, and I-495

We recommend using a standard Internet Web Browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari for pre-trip planning. Go directly to the map and bookmark it for future reference. Not all types of the available map features are displayed immediately. Some turn off and on based on the map extent of your current view. Others need to be turned on by the user. Be sure to go to LAYERS.
