Expect delays and detours, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

FAIRFAX ― Over the next two weeks, motorists should expect delays and detours at the Fairfax County Parkway and Fair Lakes Parkway from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. weeknights while crews erect beams for the bridges that will carry traffic over Fair Lakes Parkway and Monument Drive.
From May 7 to May 1l, motorists heading to the Fairfax County Parkway from Monument Drive will be detoured to West Ox Road between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night.

From May 14 to May 18, motorists will not be able to make left turns from Fair Lakes Parkway to Fairfax County Parkway from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, nor will through traffic be permitted across Fairfax County Parkway from Fair Lakes Parkway. Fair Lakes Parkway traffic will be detoured onto Fair Lakes Circle.

The entire project is scheduled for completion in 2013. The $69.5 million interchange at Fairfax County Parkway and Fair Lakes Parkway will improve pedestrian and cyclist access, widen more than three miles of the Fairfax County Parkway, and improve traffic flow by separating local and Parkway traffic through this busy area. See the VDOT project page for more details.
