Springfield District Paving and Restriping

News and Updates


Community Meeting Held April 5; Comment Period Extended through April 15, 2018

The Virginia Department of Transportation and Fairfax County Department of Transportation held a public meeting on paving and restriping efforts in the Springfield District on Thursday, April 5. Community members were invited to give feedback on general traffic safety concerns regarding roads scheduled for repaving, and the proposed striping changes by submitting comments online.

Please note that no additional roads can be added to the paving schedule at this time; any suggestions for new paving and restriping changes will be saved for future planning.

 

Background

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has scheduled several roads in the Springfield District for repaving in 2018. The paving will take place starting in April and concluding in November 2018. Exact work dates are available about ten days prior to work beginning, as contractors set schedules based on personnel and equipment availability. In subdivisions, "no parking" signs with precise date information will be posted at least three business days prior to work starting. Residents can expect work vehicles in their neighborhood during the project. Motorists are asked to be alert to temporary traffic patterns. Cars, basketball hoops or garbage cans may need to be temporarily relocated while work is under way. Work hours are usually limited to outside of rush hours. Crews typically work on neighborhood streets weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On other roads such as interstates and some primaries, work may occur overnight.

See VDOT’s interactive paving map for more information on road specific project status and contact information, which is updated weekly during the paving season.

* Projects may need to be postponed to 2019 due to inclement weather or other reasons.
 

Additional Information


Proposed striping changes in the Springfield District include wider shoulders on Hooes Road, buffered bike lanes on Huntsman Boulevard, and road redesign on Legato Road between West Ox Road and Fair Lakes Parkway, as well as on Post Forest Drive.
 

South Springfield District Information


Hooes Road

FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to widen the shoulders on Hooes Road between Fairfax County Parkway and Lorton Road.


Huntsman Boulevard

Shiplett Boulevard Buffered Bike LaneAs recommended by the Fairfax County’s Comprehensive Plan, FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to remove the underutilized on-street parking between Fairfax County Parkway and Spur Road to improve the existing bike lane to a buffered bike lane, which adds additional space between motorized vehicles and people riding bicycles. If you or your guests regularly park along that section of Huntsman Boulevard, please submit a comment describing the exact location. Additionally, the proposal includes striping parking lanes from Sydenstricker Road to Old Keene Mill Road and sharrows (shared lane markings) from Spelman Drive to Old Keene Mill Road. (Pictured: Shiplett Boulevard in Burke)

North Springfield District Information


Legato Road (West Ox Road to Legato Road)

FCDOT and VDOT are proposing a road redesign of Legato Road to increase traffic safety for all road users. The proposed design includes a travel lane in each direction, dedicated left turn lanes and buffered bike lanes. Learn more about the benefits of redesigning roads with the goal of creating complete streets.


Legato Road (Fair Lakes Parkway to Cul-de-Sac)

FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to add buffered bike lanes in both directions by narrowing the existing extra-wide travel lanes and removing the additional northbound travel lane.


Post Forest Drive

Westbranch Drive Buffered Bike LaneIn response to community concerns about road safety, VDOT previously converted one travel lane to a center turn lane.

FCDOT and VDOT are now proposing to center the turn lane, add buffered bike lanes in each direction, and remove the additional westbound travel lane. The proposed road redesign is expected to increase road safety for all users and to reduce speeding. The new configuration is not expected to cause delays for drivers.
