Getting light rail going down Route 28 from Route 7 to Manassas would help traffic, but even with that, probably only max 20-30% of the cars be taken off the road. With the current political will and funding challenges, likely not going to happen until decades from now.
If more businesses where jobs permit (not defense sensitive or customer facing retail or physical labor) would allow their employees to telecommute part time, that would help shorter term. Of course, some businesses frustrated with the area's traffic, moving at least small pieces of their business (does not make front business page news) to less traffic challenged and cheaper parts of the USA or overseas.
