Parkway To Be Repaved – H@$$ Freezes Over

Patch reports that Fairfax County Parkway (or whatever it’s name is going to be) will finally be repaved, now that it’s a primary road and eligible for federal funding.

Here’s the report:

The Virginia Department of Transportation will repave 24 miles of the 32-mile, six-lane Fairfax County Parkway between Route 7 in Dranesville and Rolling Road in Springfield beginning this spring and lasting through October.

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 plan and schedule.  Each meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

“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,” said VDOT.   “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 [sic] Lakes Parkway and locations that were paved in the last five years.

They mean Fair Lakes Parkway. In any case, Hoo-Ray!
