FAIRFAX – Due to weather delays, the closure of Popes Head Road (Route 654) between Colchester Road (Route 612) and Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) to through traffic that began Oct. 15 is being extended through Friday, Nov. 30 to complete the replacement of the bridge over Piney Branch, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
