Quantico Growth Largely Free of Traffic Jams, School Overcrowding
- July 25, 2011
The northern Virginia region surrounding Marine Corps Base Quantico may have survived the BRAC growth coming to the installation.
Many of the 2,000 federal employees slated to transfer to Quantico already have arrived without generating significant traffic congestion or an influx of new students in the schools of Prince William and Stafford counties, according to Tom Rumora, BRAC coordinator for the Quantico Growth Management Committee, as reported by PotomacLocal.com.
The reason, according to officials, is that many of the workers affected by BRAC did not move to Prince William or Stafford counties, and just adjusted their commutes instead.
