ROLLING ROAD RAMP IMPROVEMENTS COMPLETE
Wider ramp, new signals, shared-use enhancements at Fairfax County Parkway
SPRINGFIELD – Crews have officially completed work on a widened interchange ramp and other improvements at Rolling Road and the Fairfax County/Franconia-Springfield Parkway, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
The inner loop of the interchange, taking traffic from Rolling Road to the Fairfax County Parkway, was widened to two lanes, with other improvements featuring:
- Bridge rehabilitation, including bridge deck overlay, superstructure and substructure repairs, and a new pier protection system
- Upgraded traffic signals at the intersections of Rolling Road, Bentley Village Drive and the ramp from westbound Franconia-Springfield Parkway; also at Rolling Road and the ramp from eastbound Franconia-Springfield Parkway
- Retaining walls along Hunter Village Drive and Franconia-Springfield Parkway
- New shoulders along the ramp, Fairfax County and Franconia-Springfield parkways
- Median work along Fairfax County Parkway and Rolling Road
- Shared-use path improvements along Rolling Road and Hunter Village Drive
- New lighting
These improvements will better meet the current and future capacity needs expected over the next twenty years with the extension of the Fairfax County Parkway and increased traffic to the Fort Belvoir North Area.
The project cost, including right-of-way and preliminary engineering, is about $14 million. The $9.8 million contract was completed by design-build contractor Allan Myers.
