FCDOT and VDOT are considering upgrades to the following crosswalk locations, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage:
- Westmoreland Road and Barrett Road
- Westmoreland Road and Wayne Road
Old Keene Mill Road: FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to narrow the travel lanes to a standard 11-foot and widen the existing shoulder between Rolling Road and Greeley Boulevard. In areas where no shoulder is present, the median will be widened to improve the safety of crossing pedestrians.
FCDOT and VDOT are considering upgrades to the following crosswalk location, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage:
- Greeley Road at Bellamy Avenue near West Springfield Elementary School: Location would require some parking restrictions to provide sufficient visibility of the crosswalk.
- 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.
