Community Meeting Held March 20; Comment Period Closed April 10, 2019
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a public meeting on proposed paving changes in the Springfield District on Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 p.m., in the West Springfield Governmental Center. Community members had the opportunity to learn about VDOT's repaving program and give feedback. Please note there are no restriping changes planned for Springfield District. The comment period for Springfield District paving and restriping feedback closed April 10.
- Paving-related comments (e.g., drainage issues, missing signage, signal repair, walkway repair and sight distance issues due to vegetation overgrowth) should be submitted through the myVDOT portal: https://my.vdot.virginia.gov/. If you would like to request road repairs, please follow the "I need a road repaired" link on the VDOT portal or call 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623).
- Unfortunately, no additional roads can be added to the preliminary 2019 paving schedule at this point.
- Striping-related comments (e.g., marked parking lanes, crosswalks, and/or sight distance issues due to parked vehicles) can be submitted electronically to FCDOT.
As part of its annual maintenance, VDOT repaves hundreds of roads in Fairfax County each year. FCDOT and VDOT collaborate during the repaving and restriping process to efficiently implement the Fairfax County Comprehensive Plan that seeks to improve traffic safety and provide transportation options to people around the County.
Paving work is scheduled to begin in April and conclude in November. 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 Northern Virginia Paving Program page for more information on road specific projects, status, maps and contact information, which is updated weekly during the paving season.
