Some traffic shifted to new bridge and connector road

MANASSAS―On or about July 11, drivers will notice several new traffic patterns as construction progresses on the new overpass at Route 28 (Nokesville Road) and Wellington Road in Manassas. Three changes are planned:

• Traffic heading north on Route 28 (Nokesville Road) will now directed over the newly constructed bridge.

• Traffic heading to Wellington Road from northbound Route 28 will now turn right onto the new Wellington Road Connector just prior to crossing the bridge.

• Traffic heading to northbound Route 28 from Wellington Road will now turn onto the new Wellington Road Connector just east of the new bridge.

The traffic pattern for southbound Route 28 (Nokesville Road) and Wellington Road in both directions will remain the same.

Electronic message signs are in place to notify drivers and will remain in place for one week after the switch is made. Temporary construction signs will also direct drivers to and from northbound Route 28 and Wellington Road. See a graphic showing the new bridge configuration and temporary signs.

The new $44 million Route 28 overpass at Wellington Road and the Norfolk Southern Railroad in Manassas will eliminate the at-grade railroad crossing, improving safety for motorists and pedestrians and eliminating bottlenecks for train stoppages. The entire project is scheduled for completion in November 2012. More details are available on the VDOT project page.
