Manassas National Battlefield Bypass Draft Environmental Impact Statement
FHWA, in conjunction with NPS, proposes to close US Route 29 and VA Route 234 within the Manassas National Battlefield Park and to provide an alternative means of transportation for the traffic that is currently using those two routes within the Park. The closure is needed to enhance Park experience, improve historic preservation efforts, and allow for better Park operation and management. The Park experiences daily congestion within the center of the Park on both Routes 29 and 234, as well as heavy volumes of cut-through commuter traffic traversing some of the most sensitive historic resources in the Park.
This Draft Environment Impact Statement was published in 2005.
Due to the period of time that has passed since the 2005 Draft EIS, and changes in the land use in some areas surrounding the park, the National Park Service has decided to not pursue the Battlefield Bypass Final EIS at this time. This decision has been documented in the Federal Register on February 9, 2018 - https://federalregister.gov/d/2018-02602
