Route 28 Widening Project "Pardon Our Dust" Virtual Meeting Set for Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020

 For Immediate Release
Oct. 20, 2020

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold a “Pardon Our Dust” virtual meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2020, at 7 p.m., to present the plans for initial construction of the Route 28 widening project.

The project will widen existing Route 28 from four to six lanes from just north of the bridge over Bull Run to the interchange at Route 29. The meeting will provide more detail on the project’s final design and construction schedule, including initial construction work that is anticipated to begin in late 2020. This initial work will be limited to temporary shoulder widening along both the northbound and southbound roadways between the Bull Run bridge and Route 29 to provide space for lane shifts. The project plans to maintain two lanes of travel in each direction during peak hours when the full roadway construction begins, which is anticipated in late Spring/early Summer 2021. The project presentation will be posted here prior to the meeting.

The meeting also will provide more information on the project’s final design and construction schedule and will include an opportunity for questions from the public.

Please note: The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the Fairfax County Route 28 widening project. Fairfax County plans to hold separate public meetings in the future regarding Prince William County's plans for Route 28 improvements. The meeting on October 27, 2020, is not intended to address the improvements or alignment alternative(s) that Prince William County has proposed.
