Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and to ensure ample opportunity for the community to provide input moving forward, the Fairfax County and Franconia-Springfield Parkways Alternatives Analysis and Long Term Planning Study outreach meetings initially planned for May 2020 have been postponed. Fairfax County Department of Transportation staff continues to assess prior survey results, public feedback and initial analyses and is in the process of developing and testing an array of potential alternative solutions for the Parkways that address community and commuter needs. Preliminary recommendations will be brought to the public for review and feedback, with consideration to study schedule and feasibility of in-person and/or virtual public meetings. Please use the feedback link below to contact the project team with any questions.
Spring 2019 Community Meetings Held; Public Outreach Summary Available
The Fairfax County Parkway and Franconia-Springfield Parkways Study seeks to explore improvements and make recommendations for the 31-mile corridor that stretches from Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) in Herndon to Route 1 (Richmond Highway) in Alexandria. To date, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) has held two rounds of community meetings with opportunities for feedback and public comment in person and through online surveys.
Results from the second round of meetings and public outreach are now available. The team currently is utilizing the feedback received from Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 outreach efforts to develop and test alternative improvements for both Parkways. FCDOT will present preliminary results and recommendations for potential future improvements by segment and intersection at a third round of community meetings, anticipated in early 2020. For specific meeting information from 2018 and 2019, please see the Community Meetings section below.
