Community Held March 26; Comment Period Closed April 9, 2019
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes in the Sully District on Tuesday, March 26, 6:30 p.m., in the Sully Government Center. Community members had the opportunity to learn about VDOT's repaving program, proposed striping changes and give feedback. The comment period for Sully District paving and restriping feedback closed April 9.
- 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.
Sully District Information
New Braddock Road between Store House Drive and Centrewood Road: FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to convert the underutilized outside lanes in each direction to on-street parking and bike lanes. Learn more about the benefits of redesigning roads with the goal of creating complete streets. (Hinson Farm Road, pictured.)
St. Germain Drive between Machen Road and Golden Oak Road: FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to add bike lanes between the travel lane and the parking lane. All on-street parking will remain.
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.
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.
