Ground has been broken on the Rt. 28 widening project in Manassas! While the project is located within the City, it is regional in nature. The Rt. 28 Widening South to City Limits, reduces congestion on a high-volume corridor that runs through the City of Manassas, VA - Government City of Manassas Park, VA Prince William County Government, Virginia Fairfax County Government and Loudoun County Government. It was so exciting to celebrate this huge milestone IN PERSON with our friends at
Virginia Department of Transportation and the City of Manassas! This is truly a collaborative effort to enhance mobility in the region. #northernva #multimodal 🚗🚴🚶‍♀️
