Route 28 Widening Groundbreaking
Groundbreaking for the Route 28 Widening Project on May 26, 2021

The Route 28 Widening Project is a collaborative effort to enhance mobility in the region. The project includes:

  • Widening Route 28 from 4 lanes to 6 lanes from Godwin Drive to the southern Prince William County limit, reducing congestion for commuters traveling from western Prince William County to I-66.

  • Adding a dual left turn lane on north-bound Route 28 to serve Godwin Drive, making it safer for travelers who exit the 234 Bypass to merge and turn on Godwin Drive.
  • Improving traffic signals and street lighting.

  • Adding a Bike/Pedestrian shared use path to grow the city's trail system and make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians to get around.


  • Funding for this project is made possible through Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) regional revenues, and city funds. The total cost is $20.2 million.

  • Completion of the project is expected in Fall 2022.
