60% Plans Now Available
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held 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 meeting provided more information on the project’s final design and construction schedule and included an opportunity for questions from the public.
While formal comments closed Nov. 13, 2020, questions or feedback may be submitted to the FCDOT project team:
