Mathis Avenue Improvements

Mathis Avenue Capital Improvement Project from Sudley Road to Liberia Avenue (T-086)

The Mathis Avenue capital improvement project originates from the Mathis Avenue Sector Plan (2006) which called for high-density, mixed-use development, enhanced streetscapes with pedestrian/bicycle linkages; open space and green connections, and attractive gateways. This project is located within the Mathis Character Area as described in the Manassas 2040 Comprehensive Plan.

The goal of the project is to reconstruct Mathis Avenue from Sudley Road to Liberia Avenue as a two-lane facility with a planted median and dedicated turn lanes within the existing right-of-way. This project includes streetscape and pedestrian improvements. The project will:

  • Improve pedestrian safety and connectivity between the City’s two historic districts
  • Establish a distinct character for the Mathis corridor
  • Promote investment in the Mathis Corridor, which was designated as an Opportunity Zone under the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.


  • Partially funded in the FY21 CIP. Federal funds are being sought to fully fund this project.
  • The concept was developed in June 2019.
  • Survey was completed in April 2020.
  • Preliminary Engineering in progress.
