Dems Okay $1M for New Design for Rte 28; 70 Homes at Stake

The long-awaited Va. 28 bypass was already shaping up to be one of the most impactful local road projects in decades by requiring the taking of more than 50 Manassas homes, including an estimated seven to 10 in the Bull Run Mobile Home Park.

The vote:
Yes:  Wheeler, Boddye, Bailey, Angry
No:    Lawson, Vega, Weir
