Traffic impacts from the Tri-County Parkway project plan:

  • The VDOT and National Park Service agreement calls for CLOSING Route 234 from NVCC to Featherbed Lane.
  • Route 29 slated for “traffic calming” measures and then closure with Manassas Battlefield Bypass
  • Pageland Lane eliminated and abandoned
  • Catharpin Road becomes major cut through for traffic going to Gainesville
  • Featherbed (now a dirt road) and Groveton will be the only option for many commuters.
  • All local and commuter traffic diverted to I-66
