Big news! The Fairfax County Parkway is being re-designated as a primary road! Back in June 2011, I joined Supervisor Pat Herrity in contacting VDOT, and voicing my support for this reclassification, so I am very happy to hear that the change will finally occur. What does this mean for our area? Designating the Parkway as a primary road opens it up for repaving. Currently, Northern Virginia doesn’t have the money to repave its secondary road systems, meaning we never had the funding for repairs to the Parkway. However, its new status as a primary road will give it precedent for repaving needs!
You can learn more about where these efforts started in Pat Herrity’s newsletter, The Herrity Report.
