PUBLIC INFO MEETINGS ON ROUTE 28 SAFETY AND OPERATIONS STUDY
Join VDOT July 20 and July 22


Route 28 (Centreville Road)

CENTREVILLE—The Virginia Department of Transportation will host public information meetings Monday, July 20 and Wednesday, July 22 on results of a traffic operational and safety study to identify short term recommendations to improve traffic operations on Route 28 (Centreville Road) from South of I-66 to Liberia Avenue. The study analyzed traffic data to identify locations where low cost improvements may be made to the corridor.

“The study concluded that if the recommended short-term congestion and safety improvements are implemented, travel times will be reduced and traffic operations in the Route 28 Corridor will improve,” said Tom Fahrney, Special Project Development for VDOT. “After the comments from the public information meetings are reviewed and considered, the study team’s next steps will be to seek funding for preliminary design of the recommended improvements.”

On July 20, the public can stop by between 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Centreville Elementary School, 14330 Green Trails Blvd., Centreville, VA 20121.

On July 22, the public can stop by between 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Manassas Park Community Center, 99 Adams Street, Manassas Park, VA 20111.

The meeting will be an open-house format with VDOT staff on hand to discuss project information, including traffic impacts and schedule, and answer questions. A brief presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. at both meeting locations.

Written comments may be given at the meeting. They may also be mailed to Mr. Tom Fahrney, Project Manager, Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030 or emailed to meeting_comments@VDOT.virginia.gov.

The study cost an estimated $750,000. VDOT worked in conjunction with the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park and the Counties of Fairfax and Prince William to undertake the development of the study.
