Civil War "festivities" will mess up traffic from Thursday through Sunday

See the news note below. This may have a severe effect on members of your staff:

The four-day observance of the 150th anniversary of the First Battle of Manassas begins Thursday morning, July 21, at the Manassas National Battlefield Park. Although the event takes place in Prince William County, thousands of actors are expected to participate in the reenactment as well as countless visitors in attendance.

Drivers in the area of Lee Highway/Route 29, Sudley Road/Route 234 and throughout Manassas National Battlefield Park area can expect major congestion and delays due to the event and are encouraged to avoid the area if possible. Those driving in these areas need to drive with care, follow police direction and remain alert for pedestrians traversing and crossing roadways.

It is also anticipated that the observance may cause traffic related back-ups and delays in Fairfax County along portions of Lee Highway, Lee Jackson Highway and I-66.

Please allow plenty of time if traveling to or near the observance. More information on the event can be found online at
