Evening lane closures on Ashton Avenue in Manassas could begin as early as this Thursday due to the Prince William County Service Authority’s first phase of the Sudley Road Water Main Improvements Project.

A single southbound lane will be closed from Lomond Drive to Crestwood Drive as the utility connects a new water main with an existing pipe. That same section of Ashton Avenue is tentatively scheduled to be closed to motorists during the evenings of Friday, Aug. 17 and Monday, Aug. 20, and require a detour. Virginia Department of Transportation signage will be placed on the street this week to inform motorists of alternate routes during the road closure. The work on Ashton Avenue is expected to start at 9:00 p. m. and conclude each morning at 5:00 a. m.

Estimated to take 12 months to complete, the Sudley Road Water Main Improvements Project entails the installation of approximately 7,700 feet of 16-inch water main from the Sudley Road-Rixlew Lane intersection to the Ashton Avenue-Sudley Manor Drive intersection. This project will maintain water quality and enhance system reliability for customers living in the Greater Manassas area.

The current water main serving the area was constructed in the 1970s and 1980s and is more difficult to perform maintenance on due to its depth, location and number of valves. The second phase of the project will include decommissioning of the current main and installing several loop closures to further improve the reliability of the system.
