About the Project
This project will add a third lane to northbound Route 29 from just before Pickwick Road to about a quarter-mile beyond the traffic signal.
The additional lane will create added capacity and will make northbound Route 29 three lanes the entire way between I-66 in Centreville and Union Mill Road. The entire section of southbound Route 29 between Union Mill Road and I-66 in Centreville is already three lanes.
Fairfax County is fully funding the project, which is being administered by VDOT.
Northbound Route 29 averages about 33,000 vehicles a day.
