Yesterday, we spoke with VDOT regarding the repaving project on Old Keene Mill Road. The operations along OKM on Sept. 16th. Currently, the eastbound and westbound directions of the OKM/connector road Frontier Drive up to the eastern project limits has been milled and I understand that the westbound paving began earlier this week. Frontier Drive milling operations started this week and will be paved soon. This area is to be finished first with the opening of Springfield Mall next week (Oct 17).
The goal is to complete OKM at least up to Rolling Road by the end of the year. VDOT is actively engaging with their contractor to support them getting as much done as possible. They’ve also requested additional crews and are working with them to hopefully work on Columbus Day to support these efforts.
We are aware that this is a high priority for all Springfield residents and we will try our best to keep you in the loop as we hear more from VDOT.
