FAIRFAX – The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Thursday, Dec. 7 on plans to widen about five miles of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) from four to six lanes between Route 29 (Lee Highway) and Route 123 (Ox Road).

The project also includes:

A presentation will begin at 7 p.m.
