FAIR OAKS – All lanes of eastbound Route 50 (Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway) adjacent to Fair Oaks Mall will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, April 26 to late Sunday night, April 28 for Virginia Department of Transportation crews to replace a stormwater pipe.

Traffic will be detoured via West Ox Road (Route 608), Monument Drive, Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) and eastbound I-66 back to eastbound Route 50.

Two of the three ramps from the Fair Oaks Mall loop to eastbound Route 50 will be closed; the ramp closest to I-66 will remain open.

Westbound Route 50 will not be affected by the work and will remain open.
