About the Study
This STARS (Strategically Targeted Affordable Roadway Solutions) study is assessing potential operational, safety and accessibility improvements for nearly three miles of Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) between Battleview Parkway and Godwin Drive in Manassas.
The study is assessing existing traffic and safety conditions along Route 234 Business (Sudley Road), and significant backups and congestion that occur during morning and evening peak periods. The study team solicited public input regarding corridor priorities during the first round of virtual public involvement in June 2021. This feedback was used to help develop draft operational, safety and accessibility alternatives that were presented during the second round of virtual public involvement, which occurred December 2021-January 2022.
The draft alternatives include:
- Bicycle and pedestrian enhancements between the I-66 interchange and Balls Ford Road, as well as pedestrian enhancements at the Sudley Manor Drive intersection
- Additional local bus stops between Balls Ford Road and Godwin Drive
- Turn lane improvements at the intersections of the I-66 interchange ramps, Balls Ford Road, Coverstone Drive/Williamson Boulevard, Sudley Manor Drive, Lomond Drive, Crestwood Drive, Portsmouth Road and Rixlew Lane
- Innovative intersection improvements, including a quadrant roadway intersection at Balls Ford Road and a displaced left turn intersection at Sudley Manor Drive
Public feedback regarding the draft alternatives will be used to develop recommendations that will be detailed in the final report that is scheduled to be released in spring 2022.
Route 234 Business (Sudley Road) averages about 50,000 vehicles a day within the study limits based on 2019 data.
