The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding three public information meetings this fall on plans to widen and make other improvements to about five miles of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) between Route 29 (Lee Highway) and Route 123 (Ox Road).

Meetings will take place on the following dates:

Tuesday, Sept. 25
Willow Spring Elementary School
5400 Willow Springs School Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030

Thursday, Sept. 27
Fairview Elementary School
5815 Ox Rd, Fairfax Station, VA 22039

Wednesday, Oct. 3
Oak View Elementary School
5004 Sideburn Rd, Fairfax, VA 22032

Each meeting will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a presentation at 7 p.m. VDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

The proposed preliminary design also includes:

  • Building a new interchange at Popes Head Road and the future Shirley Gate Road extension
  • Improving the existing Fairfax County Parkway Trail and creating a new shared-use path to make the trail continuous within the project limits.

The project is being financed with federal, state and local funds, including Smart Scale and Northern Virginia Transportation Authority funding.

Comments may be provided at the meeting or sent to VDOT by Oct. 15, 2018. E-mail or mail comments to Mr. Sitaram Kodali, P.E., Project Manager, Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
