Little River Turnpike-Guinea Road Intersection Improvements Coming This Spring
Join VDOT for a virtual meeting March 1 and learn more at virginiadot.org/LittleRiverGuinea

FAIRFAX – Improvements are coming to the intersection of Little River Turnpike (Route 236) and Guinea Road (Route 651) in Fairfax County, and the Virginia Department of Transportation invites residents to a virtual information meeting at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 1 to learn more.

The improvements aim to improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection and include:  

  • A new free-flow right-turn lane from northbound Guinea Road to eastbound Little River Turnpike to help improve traffic flow and relieve backups
  • Adding a pedestrian island at the southern end of the intersection
  • Restriping to create a new through/right-turn lane on eastbound Little River Turnpike between Guinea Road and Old Hickory Road

Work is expected to start in April by a combination of VDOT maintenance crews and existing on-call contracts, and will be complete this summer, at a cost of about $366,000.

In this area, Little River Turnpike averages about 41,000 vehicles a day and Guinea Road averages 9,400.
