A project that could impact Manassas residents is underway.
The Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA) has started the first part of the Sudley Road Water Main Improvements Project.
It seeks to maintain water quality and improve the reliability of the water system.
The Service Authority’s contractor will install about 7,700 feet of 16-inch water main between the Sudley Road-Rixlew Lane intersection and the Ashton Avenue-Sudley Manor Drive junction in Manassas, according to a release.
In the second phase, officials will shut down the existing main, which was constructed in the 1970s and 1980s and can be difficult to work on.
“Loop closures” will also be added.
To limit traffic disruptions, the contractor will work on the project at night, when possible.
During one evening, Ashton Avenue may be closed from Lomond Drive to Crestwood Drive while workers connect and current water main with the new one.
The date of the expected closure will be advertised on detour signs that will be put in place before the work occurs.
