TRAFFIC ALERT: PREPARE FOR ROAD CLOSURES AT FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY AT FAIR LAKES
FAIRFAX – Motorists are advised of two road closures scheduled in early June at the Fairfax County Parkway and Fair Lakes Parkway where the Virginia Department of Transportation is constructing an interchange.
Permanent closure at Fairfax County Parkway and North Lake Drive
Weather permitting, on Wednesday, June 1, motorists will no longer be able to access North Lake Drive to or from the Fairfax County Parkway. This permanent closure is part of the ultimate plan for the new interchange. Once sound walls are constructed across North Lake Drive, a cul de sac will be built. Residents in the Villages of Fair Lakes will use Route 50 to access their homes.
Weekend closure of Monument Drive at Fairfax County Parkway
From 7 a.m. Saturday, June 4 until 5 a.m. Monday, June 6, Monument Drive at the Fairfax County Parkway will be closed while crews install a 30-inch storm drain pipe across Monument Drive. A detour will be posted directing traffic as follows:
Route 7100 traffic wanting to access Monument Drive will be detoured onto Fair Lakes Parkway. From Fair Lakes Parkway, turn left onto West Ox Road and left onto Monument Drive.
Traffic coming from Fields Bridge Road and Fair Ridge Drive wanting to go west on Monument to Route 7100 will be directed to turn right on Monument Drive, turn right on West Ox Road and right on Fair Lakes Parkway to Route 7100.
Traffic coming from Marley Garden Lane, Fields Bridge Road, Fair Ridge Drive, Monument Court and Vernoy Hills Road wanting to access Route 7100 will be directed to turn left on Monument, right on West Ox Road, right on Fair Lakes Parkway to Route 7100.
Message boards will alert motorists and residents to these changes. If it rains, the June 4-6 weekend closure will be postponed until June 18 so that it does not conflict with Celebrate Fairfax, the county’s annual fair.
