Route 28 serves residential and business destinations from Remington in Fauquier County to Route 7 in Loudoun County, connecting Route 29, Route 234, I-66, Route 50, Dulles International Airport and Route 267 in between. The corridor has experienced increased congestion for many years, particularly in Prince William and Fairfax Counties south of I-66. To address this congestion, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) proposes widening Route 28 for a distance of approximately 2.3 miles from the existing bridge over Bull Run to the interchange at Route 29. The project includes:
- widening the existing four lane roadway
- adding additional lanes on side streets to improve intersections
- upgrading existing traffic signals
- improving bicycle and pedestrian connections and crossings, including new 10' shared-use path on both sides of Route 28
