Coalition Urges Prince William to Move Forward with Route 28 Bypass
The Northern Virginia Transportation Business Coalition, a partnership of more than 20 regional business and community organizations focused on improving transportation in Northern Virginia, is urging the Prince William Board of County Supervisors to designate the Godwin Drive Extension as the locally preferred location for long-term improvements to Route 28.
The Coalition strongly supports the Godwin Drive Extension because it produces the greatest long-term congestion relief at the lowest cost to Prince William County.
The Godwin Drive Extension will provide many benefits for people who live in and travel through the Route 28 Corridor, including:
- Improved rush hour travel times including a 50% reduction in morning delays
- Reduced traffic in historic downtown Manassas by 7,700 vehicles per day
- Increased capacity and travel options to meet 2040 travel demands
- Improved intersection operation with 67% fewer intersections operating over capacity
- Construction of a new bike/pedestrian path along Godwin Drive
- Smallest total community impact to homes and businesses
- Lowest cost to tax-payers – leveraging $95 million in regional transportation funds
- Overwhelmingly supported by Prince William County voters as a part of the 2019 Mobility Bond
We need your help. The Prince William Board of County Supervisors is meeting on Tuesday, July 14th at 2:00 pm to considering a resolution designating the Bypass as the locally preferred location.
