Online Community Meeting Held April 18; Comment Period Closed May 2, 2022
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a virtual public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes in the Providence, Dranesville and Hunter Mill Districts on Monday, April 18. Community members had the opportunity to learn about VDOT's repaving program, proposed striping changes and provide feedback.
Cottage Street: FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to narrow travel and parking lanes and add bike lanes where possible between Gallows Road and Cedar Lane. Existing legal on-street parking will be maintained.
Wolf Trap Road: FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to narrow travel and parking lanes and add bike lanes between Gallows Road and the end of the street. Existing legal on-street parking will be maintained.
FCDOT and VDOT are considering upgrades to the following crosswalk locations, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage:
- Madrillon Road at Boss Street: Location would require some parking restrictions to provide sufficient visibility of the crosswalk.
- Madrillon Road at Merry Oaks Lane: Location would require some parking restrictions to provide sufficient visibility of the crosswalk.
- Stonewall Drive at Shenandoah Street: Location would require some parking restrictions to provide sufficient visibility of the crosswalk.
- Wolftrap Road at Wolftrap Court: Location would require some parking restrictions to provide sufficient visibility of the crosswalk.
- Hibbard Street at Chain Bridge Road: Along Chain Bridge Road.
Hunter Mill & Dranesville: There are no striping improvements proposed for the 2022 repaving schedule.
- 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/. 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 2022 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 by using the feedback form link in the red box at the bottom of this page.
See VDOT's 2022 Paving Status Map 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.
