Mount Vernon District Information
Mount Vernon Paving and Restriping Presentation - March 11, 2020
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.
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.
