MAJOR REPAVING WORK ON FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY COMING THIS SPRING
VDOT hosting four community meetings

FAIRFAX— Over the spring and summer the Virginia Department of Transportation plans to repave 24 miles of the 32-mile, six-lane Fairfax County Parkway between Rolling Road in Springfield and the Loudoun County line. The $19 million maintenance project will take place mostly at night and on weekends, and will require lane closures and occasional detours.

In advance of the work, VDOT is holding four community meetings along the corridor to communicate the work plan and schedule.  Each meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

  • April 11: Armstrong Elementary School, 11900 Lake Newport Rd, Reston, VA 20194
  • April 17:  Robinson Secondary School, 5035 Sideburn Road, Fairfax, VA 22032
  • April 24: VDOT District Office, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030
  • May 2: West Springfield High School, 6100,Rolling Rd, Springfield, VA 22152

While work will begin in April and be complete in October, the heaviest traffic impacts will be scheduled from June until Labor Day, when Fairfax County schools are out for the summer.  

Crews will re-pave the northern section of the Parkway first, from Route 7 to Baron Cameron Avenue (Route 606).

Sections of the Parkway that will not be repaved include the construction work zone area at Fairfax Lakes Parkway and locations that were paved in the last five years.
