Lee District Information
(Braeburn Road, pictured)
Fleet Drive from Yadkin Court to Beulah Street: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to restripe the road with two travel lanes, bike lanes and left turn lanes/center turn lane. Legal on-street parking will be maintained.
Grovedale Drive between Beulah Street and Franconia Road: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to restripe the road with two travel lanes, bike lanes, and a left turn lane in the wider section.
King Centre Drive between Kingstowne Village Parkway and South Van Dorn Street: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to convert the underutilized outside travel lanes to buffered bike lanes. Negative impacts on traffic operations are not expected due to very low traffic volumes on this road (pre-covid).
Seatrend Way from Franconia Road to the end of the road: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to add a center line, bike lanes and parking lanes to calm traffic speeds and improve bicycle and pedestrian safety and comfort. Legal on-street parking will be maintained on both sides of the road.
Sir Viceroy Drive from King Centre Drive to Kingstown Boulevard: VDOT and FCDOT are proposing to restripe the road with two travel lanes, a center turn lane, and bike lanes. Negative impacts on traffic operations are not expected due to very low traffic volumes on this road (pre-covid).
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.
