Braddock District Information

South Lakes Drive Bike Lane(South Lakes Drive, pictured)

Commonwealth Boulevard from Guinea Road to Sideburn Road: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to add an eastbound bike lane. This proposal will maintain legal on-street parking on both sides of the road.

Government Center Parkway from Monument Drive to Waples Mill Road: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to convert the underutilized outside travel lanes into buffered bike lanes to mitigate speeding and improve multi-modal mobility and safety.

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.

Background

Paving and Restriping ProjectAs 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.
