Fairfax County Parkway Scheduled for Repaving

Dear Friends,

In February, Fairfax County Parkway was finally re-designated as a primary road. 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. Back in June 2011, I joined Supervisor Pat Herrity in contacting VDOT, and voicing my support for this reclassification, so I was very happy to hear that the change finally occurred.

Because of this new classification, VDOT will begin major repaving work on 24 of the 32 miles of the Fairfax County Parkway beginning in April. VDOT also has scheduled four community meetings to answer any questions Fairfax residents may have.

Below is VDOT’s announcement:

MAJOR REPAVING WORK ON FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY COMING THIS SPRING

VDOT hosting four community meetings

FAIRFAX- Over the spring and summer, the Virginia Department of Transportation plans to repave 24 miles of the 32-mile, six-lane Fairfax County Parkway between Route 7 in Dranesville and Rolling Road in Springfield. The $19 million maintenance project will take place mostly at night and on weekends, and will require lane closures and occasional detours.

In advance of the work, VDOT is holding four community meetings along the corridor to communicate the work plan and schedule. Each meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

  • April 11: Armstrong Elementary School, 11900 Lake      Newport Road, Reston, VA 20194
  • April 17: Robinson Secondary School, 5035 Sideburn      Road, Fairfax, VA 22032
  • April 24: VDOT District Office, 4975 Alliance Drive,      Fairfax, VA 22030
  • May 2: West Springfield High School, 6100 Rolling Rd,      Springfield, VA 22152

While work will begin in April and be complete in October, the heaviest traffic impacts will be scheduled from June until Labor Day, when Fairfax County schools are out for the summer.

Crews will re-pave the northern section of the Parkway first, from Route 7 to Baron Cameron Avenue (Route 606).

Sections of the Parkway that will not be repaved include the construction work zone area at Fairfax Lakes Parkway and locations that were paved in the last five years.

    Thank you for this update. We really appreciate the fact that you tell us, your constituents, about plans that will affect us.
    Also, thank you for your continued fight on pro-life issues. It really is nice to have a conservative trending government in Richmond now, isn’t it? Hopefully we can continue to elect conservatives–and Catholics–that are willing to fight the war against religion in all its guises.
    Sincerely,
    Sharon McCreight

  2. Thanks, Dave. Thanks, Pat. This is great news!
