New Traffic Signal Active at Fox Mill Road and Pinecrest Road in Herndon
Temporary traffic signal installed in advance of long-term intersection improvements

HERNDON – A new traffic signal is now in service at Fox Mill Road (Route 665) and Pinecrest Road, aimed at improving safety and operations at the intersection, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

This new temporary signal will remain in place until construction begins on a longer-term intersection improvements project that would include installing a permanent signal, adding new left-turn lanes on northbound and southbound Fox Mill Road, adding four crosswalks, reconstructing sidewalks and curb ramps, constructing an eight-foot-wide walkway and curb ramp at the southeast corner of the intersection, and other improvements. Construction on that project is scheduled to begin in fall 2024.                                

At the intersection, Fox Mill Road averages 13,000 vehicles a day and Pinecrest Road averages up to 2,500, based on 2019 data.

Visit the VDOT project page for more details on the long-term project.
