2021 Paving and Restriping Program

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)’s Northern Virginia Paving Program improves hundreds of miles of roads in Fairfax County every year. VDOT and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation FCDOT) use this program as an opportunity to increase driver, bicyclist and pedestrian safety with road and crosswalk improvements while minimizing the financial investment in restriping work. FCDOT will post proposed improvements for every district in advance of each meeting - please check back soon for updates.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FCDOT currently is holding community meetings virtually via Webex. For those who cannot attend, a video of each meeting will be available on the district paving and restriping page after the event. Registration links and dial-in information will be posted in March.

Public Information Meetings; Submitting Feedback

Paving and Restriping ImageThe community is invited to provide striping-related feedback by attending a public meeting or by submitting comments online. The deadline for public comments will be two weeks after each district meeting is held.

Comments on proposed striping modifications (e.g., bike lanes, turn lanes, crosswalks, new on-street parking areas, new centerline markings and/or sight distance issues due to parked vehicles) can be submitted electronically to FCDOT; forms will be available with a list of proposed striping projects for all districts prior to every public meeting.

Road maintenance-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/. Unfortunately, no additional roads can be added to the preliminary 2021 paving schedule at this point. 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).
 

Information for Residents

  • The paving will begin in the spring and conclude in November 2021. Exact work dates are available approximately 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.
