Northbound Route 28 AM Peak Traffic at Fairfax County Line.png

The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Monday, Sept. 30 on a study of potential operational improvements for two miles of Va. 28 in Prince William County between Blooms Quarry Lane and the Fairfax County line.

Residents and drivers are also asked to provide input through an online survey that is open through Oct. 7.

The study is being completed through the Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions (STARS) program, which aims to identify cost-effective measures aimed at improving safety and reducing congestion. 

The concepts being studied include:

  • Innovative intersections such as roundabouts and overpasses
  • Improved traffic signal timing and operations
  • Turn lane improvements
  • Access management for properties along the corridor including new medians
  • Pedestrian enhancements including crosswalks and new sidewalks

Stop by between 6 and 8 p.m. at Manassas Park Community Center, 99 Adams Street, Manassas Park, VA 20111 to learn more about the study and to provide your input. A short presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m., and VDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

A key part of this phase of the study is public input. Residents and travelers of the corridor in the study area are asked to take a short survey that is now available for responses on the study website. You may also give comments at the meeting or submit them by Monday, Oct. 7 to Mr. Terrell Hughes, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 1401 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23219.

Oh yeah, let's put 2 or 3 roundabouts on Hwy 28. That'll move traffic along.

I think that was a joke by the author of the article. I took the online survey and nothing was mentioned about that.


VDOT is a joke at times. Rt. 28 has been a serious PITA for anyone driving it outbound in the AM and inbound in the afternoon. But let's build more homes and add more cars to the mix. Not VDOT's fault on this but for years VDOT and the state of VA has pretty much ignored 28 and left all residents in this area to their own devices.


Frankly, the lion’s share of transportation funding seems to go to Loudoun or Fairfax. Fairfax is closer in but Loudoun is an outer suburb, like Prince William. One thing Loudoun had privately funded was the Greenway toll road. It is insane, though, when there is such congestion on 28, that approvals for high density housing have been given right on 28 or close to it. Look at that huge complex near Yorkshire.
