2024 Paving and Restriping Program

Paving and Restriping ImageThe Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT)’s Northern Virginia Paving Program improves hundreds of miles of roads in Fairfax County every year. VDOT and the Fairfax County Department of Transportation FCDOT) use this program as an opportunity to increase driver, bicyclist and pedestrian safety with road and crosswalk improvements while minimizing the financial investment in restriping work.

The repaving program can include limited bike lane, shoulder and crosswalk improvements with signage and markings. Bike lanes or shoulders are usually installed where excess pavement width is available. Many factors need to be considered for the installation of crosswalks, including the traffic speeds and volumes, available sight distance, presence of curb ramps, and pedestrian activity. 

FCDOT will hold community meetings virtually, and will record and post all the meetings online after that are held. 

Public Information Meetings; Submitting Feedback

The community is invited to provide striping-related feedback by attending a virtual public meeting and/or by submitting comments online.

Comments on proposed striping modifications (e.g., bike lanes, turn lanes, crosswalks, new on-street parking areas, new centerline markings and/or sight distance issues due to parked vehicles) can be submitted electronically to FCDOT; forms will be available with a list of proposed striping projects for all districts prior to every public meeting.

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/. Unfortunately, no additional roads can be added to the preliminary 2024 paving schedule at this point. 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).

Information for Residents

  • The paving will begin in the spring and conclude in November 2024. Exact work dates are available approximately 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.
