New Traffic Pattern at Fairfax Parkway & Rolling Road

Next week, motorists traveling on the Fairfax County Parkway and Rolling Road in the southern part of Springfield will see the following lane configurations changes:

•    Tuesday, Oct. 4 – Eastbound Franconia-Springfield Parkway will be reduced to two lanes at the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 7100) extension. This road configuration is permanent to allow for on-off ramps to and from the Fairfax County Parkway and Rolling Road north.

•    Wednesday, Oct. 5, – Northbound lanes on the Fairfax County Parkway (7100)  extension into Springfield via Rolling Road will be shifted to the right onto new lanes between Franconia-Springfield Parkway and Rolling Road. Motorists are urged to us caution when traveling this new traffic pattern.

This work is a part of the final phase of the Fairfax County Parkway project, which includes a Rolling Road overpass that will be completed in May 2012.  The Fairfax County Parkway project was built by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA) and Fairfax County.
