Civil War Re-enactment May Impact Area Transportation This Weekend

It's not Loudoun County, but this event has the potential to spill over traffic and congestion to neighboring jurisdictions, so pay attention.

This week marks the 150th anniversary of the Battle of First Manassas (Bull Run), and the City of Manassas and Prince William County are gearing up for the festivities. For Manassas station VRE riders, all VRE lots will be open for VRE riders. However, road closures could mean some congestion on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. Here's the road closures that could impact VRE riders:
  • Prince William St. CLOSED from Grant Ave. to the parking garage
  • West St. CLOSED between Center St. and Prince William St.
  • Battle St. CLOSED between Center St. and Prince William St.

VRE reports that the Kiss and Ride area will also be moved to the intersection of Prince William and Main Streets.

And unless you plan to attend the event and enjoy the festivities, you may want to avoid the area or heading in that direction.
