Northern Virginia is one of the wealthiest areas in the United States, including Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, counties and the independent cities of Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, Manassas, and Manassas Park. These cities and towns are connected to each other with various transportation means such as railways, roadways, etc.

Northern Virginia has high road congestion rate. The area is counted among the most congested regions in the nation. In order to lessen traffic at gridlock, local governments support other forms of transportation like Metrorail, HOV, carpooling, etc. Northern Virginia Transportation conditions are worsening due to increasing population.

Curvy colonial roads are one of the biggest public transit issues. But the recent renovation of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge near Alexandria that also carries more than 300,000 vehicles everyday into Maryland will double the traffic lanes at that specific narrow area when completed in 2008.
