DULLES – Drivers on busy Route 28 are getting much needed congestion relief with the completion of a project to widen several sections of the major route near Dulles Airport, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
With construction work now officially complete, drivers have four lanes on southbound Route 28 from Waxpool Road to Route 50, as well as northbound Route 28 from McLearen Road to the Dulles Toll Road (lanes first opened in late June).
