Gallows Road Bridge Project
The Gallows Road (Route 650) bridge over Route 50 (Arlington Boulevard) will be rehabilitated this fall. Based on the latest inspection report, the superstructure is in fair condition. There are areas of corrosion and section losses in the steel beams. The substructure is in poor condition due to significant concrete spalling on the pier cap and columns at both ends of the pier. Rehabilitation will take place in 2 phases. Phase one will include substructure repairs: repairs will be made to concrete spalls, broken stirrups and corroded reinforcing steel in the pier caps and columns to restore structural capacity. The second phase of the project will include girder and deck repair, including deck milling and latex modified concrete overlay and sidewalk repair.
Phase one is anticipated to start this September and take about 2 months. Phase two is anticipated to start June 2016. Lane closures and detours are anticipated for phase two of this project. All lane closures and detours will be during night hours. To see proposed detours and for more information on this project, please visit the VDOT website at http://www.virginiadot.org/projects/northernvirginia/gallows_over_50.asp.
VDOT and its interstate maintenance contractors are responsible for patching potholes on state-maintained roadways throughout Fairfax County. If you encounter a pothole on any state-maintained road you can contact VDOT for repair by calling 1-800-FOR-ROAD or by reporting the issue here.
Potholes are created when moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and then thaws. This causes the pavement to weaken and crumble. For more information on potholes please visit VDOT's website at http://www.virginiadot.org/info/faq-potholes.asp.
