In 1994, Fairfax County identified in its Comprehensive Plan a possible alignment for a north-south connector linking Prince William, Fairfax and Loudoun counties and relieving future traffic congestion on Route 28. This map shows the general area of the project now being studied.
Of particular concern to Fairfax County residents is that, south of Route 29 in Centreville, the Tri-County Parkway takes an almost 90-degree turn east, turns south again and runs right through Bull Run Regional Park, plus homes and stables along Bull Run Post Office Road.
It begins at a Route 28 bypass junction — a new interchange on I-66 at Bull Run Regional Park, coming in on the Manassas side of I-66 between Bull Run Post Office and Compton roads. It then travels north to Bull Run Post Office and generally along its right-of-way to the Loudoun County line. Also proposed is a paved trail.
VDOT is doing an Environmental Impact Study. Then, after citizen meetings and public hearings, the Commonwealth Transportation Board will decide in early 2004 exactly where to place the roughly 10-mile stretch of road.
