Roads -- Providence District
All information regarding the I-66 project, inside or outside the beltway can be found on their website, www.transform66.org.
In December VDOT Commissioner Kilpatrick informed the public that it is in the best interest to move forward with a public private partnership for I-66 outside the Beltway. This means a private firm will design, finance, build, and maintain the project with oversight from the Commonwealth of Virginia. VDOT anticipates selecting the private partner by fall of 2016 and a financial agreement by spring of 2017.
VDOT has refined their plans with a Preferred Alternative design concept for I-66 outside the Beltway. In January they released a revised tier 2 environmental assessment which is available to view online at http://outside.transform66.org/meetings/asset_upload_file325_77658.pdf.
I-66 inside the Beltway design public hearings will take place March 7th, 8th and 9th. The public will be briefed on how the dynamically priced toll lanes would function and where proposed toll gantries and price signs would be located. All information materials from these meetings will be available online at http://inside.transform66.org/default.asp.
Hunter Mill Roundabout Project
Progress is being made on the Hunter Mill roundabout at Mystic Meadow Way. Land acquisition was completed in December of 2015. Currently utility relocations are taking place and will continue into the spring/summer of 2016. In late 2016 the bid for construction will be advertised and subsequently awarded. Construction should begin in early 2017 with the project being completed by mid/late 2017.
Capital Bikeshare is coming to Tysons! This investment will help get cars off the road, boost local economy and contribute to a healthier community. The bikeshare system allows you to check out a bike and ride short to moderate distances from bikeshare station to bikeshare station. There will be 80 bicycles available in Tysons at 11 stations located east of Route 7, north of Route 123, and south of the Dulles Toll Road. Fairfax County Department of Transportation is working to identify and refine the exact locations for the stations in Tysons, but we’re moving forward with the equipment purchase. The first phase of the system is expected to open in the fall of 2016. To learn more about Capital Bikeshare, please visit their website at www.capitalbikeshare.com.
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.
