Brain Injury Services Gives Hope and Long-Term Help to Survivors

In 2013, Brain Injury Services helped 650 individuals with brain injuries, as well as their families in the Northern Virginia area.

About Brain Injury Services

For the last 25 years, Brain Injury Services has been dedicated to the long-term care and well-being of survivors of traumatic brain injury. The organization has successfully developed several groundbreaking programs – from pediatric care to supported living assistance – and is committed to serving individuals with brain injuries in Virginia.

"Brain Injury Services plays a significant role in our community. We empower survivors to repair lives, recover possibilities and restore hope," said Karen Brown, Executive Director of Brain Injury Services. "We give hope and long-term help to survivors, building the skills and confidence they need to lead a fulfilling and productive life."

Brain Injury Services has helped thousands of individuals in Northern Virginia – and plans to help many more.

95 Express Lanes Grant Program Support

Brain Injury Services speaker's bureau program features knowledgeable brain injury survivors who are eager to share their experiences with the community. The speakers discuss their challenges, successes and insights with a variety of groups in the Washington, D.C. area.

"We find that there is a compassionate response and a better understanding of the challenges after the presentations," Brown said. "No one can explain, teach or talk about brain injury better than those who have experienced one themselves."

The grant funds provided by Transurban-Fluor were put toward a variety of speaker bureau items including preparing speakers, promoting the program and providing educational materials at presentations. The grant money enabled the organization to professionalize their efforts – which ultimately helps to promote the mission of the program more effectively.

As several speakers were injured in vehicle accidents, Transurban-Fluor also chose to support the organization's speaker's bureau due to their commitment to safety while driving – a main focus for Transurban-Fluor and the Express Lanes project.

Keeping Prince William Beautiful through Litter Removal and Education

A community litter cleanup in Spring 2013 benefits Prince William County residents.


Community volunteers take a quick break during spring 2013 cleanup. With their help, more than 400,000 Prince William County residents benefitted from litter removal.

About Keep Prince William Beautiful

Just last year, Keep Prince William Beautiful volunteers removed more than 87,000 pounds of litter from within Prince William County.

For more than 30 years, Keep Prince William Beautiful has served as the community's resource for litter cleanups.  Keep Prince William Beautiful is a non-profit environmental organization that provides pre-cleanup litter education and safety training, trash bags, landfill vouchers, gloves, vests, marketing assistance and giveaways to aid in the efficiency of cleanups.

Keep Prince William Beautiful takes pride in encouraging individuals to take responsibility for improving their community's environment. To effect change in the county, the organization offers programs varying from interactive classroom lessons to hands-on community activities which help educate the community on litter removal, recycling and water quality.

95 Express Lanes Grant Program Support

The 95 Express Lanes team chose to support Keep Prince William Beautiful because its community cleanups benefit not only the 400,000+ residents of Prince William County, but also the surrounding local businesses, government and tourists.

"The 95 Express Lanes project corridor is the gateway to our community, therefore keeping the Prince William area clean impacts everyone who enters and exits our community," said Kiliaen Anderson, Executive Director of Keep Prince William Beautiful. "Keep Prince William Beautiful is very grateful for the funding provided by Transurban-Fluor. Without the support, we would not have been able to provide the necessary supplies for our cleanups."

Trash grabbers, heavy-duty gloves and safety signs were purchased with the funding provided by Transurban-Fluor. The funding helped to ensure the safety of more than 700 volunteers and 40 home owners associations who participated in the spring cleanup, and resulted in the removal of more than 85,615 pounds of litter from within the county.

Virginia Delegate Dave Albo, Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity and a representative from the Fairfax County Parks Authority help a young volunteer.

On Saturday, June 15, 2013, local Boy Scouts from Troop 1140 (Springfield) participated in a community volunteer event to landscape an area at Burke Lake Park. The scouts were joined by Virginia Delegate Dave Albo, Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity, officials from the Fairfax County Park Authority, residents from the nearby South Run Regency community and representatives from the 95 Express Lanes project.

The officials and volunteers in attendance planted 10 trees, provided under the 95 Express Lanes 1,000 Trees in 1,000 Days program. Through the 1,000 Trees program, Transurban-Fluor is partnering with communities located near the 95 Express Lanes construction corridor and pledging to plant 1,000 trees in 1,000 days.

"South Run is largely a community of heavily-treed lots and common spaces that abuts Burke Lake Park where the dam renovation took place," said Chuck Caposell, Trustee, South Run Regency. "We are grateful for the efforts of Supervisor Herrity who, along with the generosity of Transurban-Fluor, has secured 75 trees for the park including ten located near our community."

Supervisor Herrity identified the Burke Lake Park project site and submitted an application to the 1,000 Trees program.

"This is a win win – the community need perfectly fit the community outreach efforts of Transurban-Fluor. When the Burke Lake dam underwent repairs recently, many trees had to be removed to allow equipment to enter the park," Herrity said. "The trees Transurban-Fluor, the community, and the boy scouts planted will go a long way in keeping Burke Lake Park as one of Fairfax County's most beautiful and prized assets. I want to thank the partners on the 95 Express Lanes project for their commitment to the environment and our community."

Applications will be accepted and trees will be awarded throughout the 29-month 95 Express Lanes construction schedule until 1,000 trees have been installed.

Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association: Cleaning up the Woodbridge area

The Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association Beautification Committee recognizes members of the community who make contributions to the beautification and enhancement of the Woodbridge area.


The Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association Beautification Committee recognizes members of the community who make contributions to the beautification and enhancement of the Woodbridge area.

About Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association

With the constant development of buildings, roads and communities in the Northern Virginia area, it is becoming increasingly important to care for the environment. Roadways and public areas can become overgrown and covered in litter without proper care. Fortunately, there is a group of residents who care for the area in which they live, and work hard to keep their community beautiful. The Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association (WPCCA) was founded by a group of individuals who value the wellbeing of their community and who work together to preserve it.

The WPCCA is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose purpose is to unite Woodbridge communities on issues such as land use, environment, transportation and development.

The beautification committee is the most active committee in the WPCCA. The committee organizes a variety of events and programs that focus on improving the environment in the Prince William area. The programs include cleaning up Neabsco Creek, cleaning up Route 1 and adopting local gardens. Each year, the Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association awards local businesses and residents that do an outstanding job of maintaining attractive and environmentally friendly properties in the Woodbridge area. The annual Beautification Awards are meant to inspire residents and business owners in the area to take pride in and invest in the aesthetic of their community.

95 Express Lanes Grant Support

The WPCCA Beautification Committee helps keep the Woodbridge area clean and unpolluted. The Association provides a venue for community members to engage in the issues of land use, community beautification, environment and development.

In 2008, the founders of the WPCCA came together with the goal of working to develop a plan to improve the Woodbridge community. "Litter pickups, landscaping, gardens and park investments are beneficial to residents that use and enjoy these amenities as well as businesses that operate in the community," said John Karnhak, president of WPCCA. "The litter prevention portion of our overall beautification program started when one of our members witnessed a person littering on the side of the road. Since then it has grown to include a widespread education campaign, with posters in many local stores."

To help cover the costs of the Beautification Committee's expenses, WPCCA applied for a 95 Express Lanes community grant.

The 95 Express Lanes team supported the WPCCA Beautification Committee because of its commitment to the well-being of the community.

"Transurban-Fluor takes pride in the communities we work and live in," said Kevin Ginnerty, Transurban's Director of Project Delivery. "We are pleased to support the Beautification Committee so that the Woodbridge Potomac Communities Civic Association can continue its great work for the community and environment."
