This pipe installation work is needed for an approximate two-mile widening of Route 28 from the Dulles Toll Road to Sterling Boulevard (Route 846), which is expected to be completed by mid-2020. This project is part of VDOT’s larger Route 28 Widening Project, which completed the widening of several sections of the major route near Dulles Airport in 2017. The Route 28 spot widening is funded by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority and the Route 28 Tax District, and is administered by VDOT.
