The Prince William County Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the environmental assessment study for the Va. 28 Corridor Widening project between Sudley Road in Prince William County and Compton Road in Fairfax County. The meeting will be held at Yorkshire Elementary School, 7610 Old Centreville Road, Manassas.

People who attend the meeting will receive updates on the study underway to evaluate potential social, economic and environmental effects associated with improvements along the Va. 28 corridor, said Paolo Belita, the regional planning and program manager with the county’s Department of Transportation.

Following a 10-minute presentation at 7:00 p.m., citizens and organizations will be given the opportunity to provide comments to county transportation staff.  Outside transportation consultants and representatives from the Virginia Department of Transportation will also be on hand to answer questions throughout the meeting.

The discussion will also touch on other proposed projects along the corridor, Belita said.  “Primarily, we will provide updates on the study, findings to date, and next steps moving forward. We will also discuss other Route 28 projects and studies in the area,” Belita said.

The other projects that have been funded by NVTA include the Va. 28 Congestion Study – Godwin Drive Extension Alternative and the Va. 28 Corridor Feasibility Study.

The study, which is budgeted for approximately $5 million, is fully funded by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA). The study is expected to be completed sometime next year, with design and construction dates to be determined, Belita said.
