Traffic reduced to one lane during four weeks of work

CHANTILLY – Starting Monday night, September 28, weather permitting, Route 50 between the bridge over Cub Run just east of Pleasant Valley Road in Fairfax County and Route 28 will receive final paving and new permanent striping as part of the Route 50 Widening project, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

The paving will begin Monday at 8 p.m. on westbound Route 50 at Lee Road. Over the course of four weeks, the work will progress westward on Route 50 toward the bridge over Cub Run, then shift to eastbound Route 50 at the bridge and progress eastward toward Route 28.

The work will occur each week Sunday through Friday night (except for next week), beginning at 8 p.m. and lasting until 5:30 a.m. the following day. During this timeframe, traffic will be reduced to one lane between Pleasant Valley Road in Fairfax County and Route 28.

Motorists should expect delays and are advised to use alternate routes. Message display signs are being placed to notify the public of the work. Access to and from side streets and entrances off Route 50 will not be affected.

The work is scheduled for completion in late October.

The $94.9 million project to widen Route 50 from four to six lanes between Route 28 in Fairfax County and Poland Road in Loudoun County is scheduled for substantial completion in October and final completion in November.
