Traffic detour begins June 20

MANASSAS ― On June 20, Lucasville Road in Manassas will close to thru traffic between Country Roads Lane and Hidden Spring Drive while the Virginia Department of Transportation replaces a drainage structure as part of reconstruction work to improve drainage and mitigate flooding.  The road is expected to re-open by mid-November.  

Thru traffic will follow a posted detour using Dumfries Road, Godwin Drive and Hastings Drive.

Traffic traveling from Hastings Drive to Godwin Drive will use Dumfries Road to Godwin drive to Lucasville Road. Traffic traveling from Godwin Drive to Hastings Drive will use Godwin Drive to Dumfries Road to Hastings Drive.

The $3.2 million project will raise the road’s profile and replace an existing pipe culvert with a quadruple box culvert to improve drainage and mitigate flooding. The two-lane road will be rebuilt with curb and gutter, and sidewalk will be constructed on the east side of the road.

Local residents will have access to their driveways during the closure.
