Virtual Public Meeting Held April 17; Comments Closed May 1, 2023
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) hoed a virtual public meeting on proposed paving and restriping changes in the Hunter Mill and Providence Districts on Monday, April 17, 2023.
In Hunter Mill District, FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to add standard bike lanes on Glade Drive between Sunrise Valley Drive and Reston Parkway where space allows by narrowing travel lanes.
FCDOT and VDOT are considering upgrades to the crosswalk at Monroe Street and Monroe Manor Drive, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage.
In Providence District, FCDOT and VDOT are proposing to add standard or buffered bike lanes to the following streets by narrowing travel lanes or repurposing underutilized parking lanes where feasible:
- Executive Park Avenue between the Red Cross building and Prosperity Avenue
- Gatehouse Road between Telestar Court to Gallows Road
- Williams Drive between Eskridge Road and Arlington Boulevard
- Willow Oaks Corporate Drive between Williams Drive and Gallows Road
Finally, FCDOT and VDOT are considering upgrades to the crosswalk at Willow Oaks Corporate Drive and Professional Center Access Road, which may include marked crosswalks, high-visibility crosswalks and/or crosswalk signage.
the deadline for comments was Monday, May 1, 2023.
- 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).
- 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.
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.
In general, paving work is scheduled to begin in April and conclude in November, however, the Ellenwood Drive project may begin sooner to take advantage of warmer winter weather. 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.
