NVTA starts Va. Rte. 28 widening and improvements projects from Manassas to Loudoun

Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) has kicked off a series of widening and improvement projects along VA 28 today, Monday, May 11.

VA 28 is a critical arterial through Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park, as well as Loudoun and Fairfax counties. The kickoff was the first official event celebrating Authority-funded major projects since the NVTA began receiving funding from HB 2313 on July 1, 2013.

In an afternoon ceremony at the newly constructed Innovation Avenue Bridge in Sterling, NVTA Chairman Martin Nohe (Prince William County Supervisor), Vice Chairman Ralph Buona (Loudoun County) and Chairman Sharon Bulova (Fairfax County), along with Authority members, legislators, regional leaders, VDOT and local transportation agencies officially broke ground on a series of projects on VA 28 totaling approximately $99 million. 

The widening and improvement projects will make commuting easier for an estimated 125,000 drivers daily in Manassas, Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun. Here are the projects:

In Prince William:
• VA 28 widening from Linton Hall Road to Fitzwater Drive, this includes the realignment of Vint Hill Road; and
• VA widening from VA 234 Bypass to Linton Hall Road.

In the City of Manassas:
• VA 28 widening from Godwin Drive to the Southern City/Prince William County limits; and
• VA 28 (Manassas Bypass) Study.

In Fairfax:
• VA 28 North widening from McLearen Road to the Dulles Toll Road;
• VA 28 South widening from the Dulles Toll Road to US 50; and
• VA 28 widening from the Prince William County Line to US 29.

In Loudoun:
• VA 28 South widening from Sterling Boulevard to the Dulles Toll Road, providing much needed “hot spot” improvements.

Since July 2013, the NVTA has programmed $534 million in regional congestion relieving projects.  Chairman Nohe was quoted as saying, “Thanks to the funding we receive from HB 2313, the NVTA has adopted over $534 million dollars in projects in just under two years.  That’s half a BILLION dollars in NEW congestion relieving projects right here in Northern Virginia.”
