Rolling Road-Old Keene Mill Road Intersection Improvements Now Open in Springfield
New turn lanes from northbound Rolling Road to Old Keene Mill Road, pedestrian enhancements

SPRINGFIELD – It’s now easier to travel through the intersection of Rolling Road (Route 638) and Old Keene Mill Road (Route 644) with the completion of improvements to help improve traffic flow and safety, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Drivers on northbound Rolling Road now have a second left-turn lane to westbound Old Keene Mill Road, as well as a dedicated right-turn lane to eastbound Old Keene Mill Road.

Other project improvements include striping four higher-visibility crosswalks, replacing pedestrian signals with ones that are Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant and accessible, replacing the traffic signal to accommodate the new turn lanes and reconstructing the median along Rolling Road just south of Old Keene Mill Road.

Work began in February on the intersection improvements, with final detail work occurring in the coming weeks with minimal impacts to traffic. The $5.2 million project is financed with state and Fairfax County Revenue Sharing funding.

In this area, Rolling Road averages about 25,000 vehicles a day and Old Keene Mill Road averages about 35,000 based on 2019 data.

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are reminded to use caution when traveling in active work zones. Be alert to new traffic patterns, limit distractions and follow detour route signage.
