VDOT TO HOST “PARDON OUR DUST” MEETING FOR FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY/ROLLING ROAD INTERCHANGE
Join the project team February 9 at Rolling Valley Elementary School


 

SPRINGFIELD—The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will host a “pardon our dust” meeting on a project to upgrade the loop ramp from the Fairfax County Parkway onto Fairfax County Parkway/Franconia-Springfield Parkway. Meet the project team to learn more about construction and traffic impacts.

The public can stop by between 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. on Monday, February 9 at Rolling Valley Elementary School, 6703 Barnack Drive, West Springfield, VA 22152.

VDOT begins construction late winter/early spring 2015 to widen the inner loop ramp, taking traffic from Rolling Road to Fairfax County Parkway, creating a dual-lane ramp. Other improvements in the intersection include:

• Bridge rehabilitation; providing retaining walls between Hunter Village Drive and the off-ramp from Franconia-Springfield Parkway to Rolling Road

• Adding new shoulders along the loop ramp and median work along Fairfax County Parkway and Rolling Road

• Upgrading two existing traffic signals along Fairfax County Parkway, at Rolling Road/Bentley Village Drive/the ramp from westbound Franconia-Springfield Parkway and at Rolling Road/ the ramp from eastbound Franconia-Springfield Parkway

• Shared-use path improvements along Rolling Road and Hunter Village Drive

The cost estimate for the design-build project is $14 million. American Infrastructure (AI) is the design-build contractor. The project is expected to complete in Spring 2016.

More information on the project is available here.
