About the Project

This project added a fourth lane to southbound Route 28 between Waxpool Road and Route 50, and to northbound Route 28 between McLearen Road and the Dulles Toll Road.

The project's final configuration (fourth lane completely open on both northbound and southbound Route 28) was achieved in late June 2017. The fourth southbound lane between Waxpool Road and Innovation Avenue was opened to traffic in January 2017.

The project also includes additional improvements associated with constructing the new southbound and northbound lanes. Final completion is scheduled in late summer 2017.

More information is available on the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority website.
