Fairfax County Parkway repaving meetings

Parkway trail south of Rt 29
VDOT will be repaving 24 miles of the 32-mile, six-lane Fairfax County Parkway between Route 7 in Dranesville and Rolling Road in Springfield. While the road has been repaved several times, the paved sidepath has never been repaved.

The trail is in very poor, dangerous condition and should be repaved. Cyclists should attend the repaving meetings to ask that the trail also is repaved, either as part of this project or concurrnetly as a separately project.

The meetings starts at 7pm at the following dates and locations:
  • April 11: Armstrong Elementary School, 11900 Lake Newport Rd, Reston, VA 20194
  • April 17: Robinson Secondary School, 5035 Sideburn Road, Fairfax, VA 22032
  • April 24: VDOT District Office, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030
  • May 2: West Springfield High School, 6100, Rolling Rd, Springfield, VA 22152
Three FABB members recently rode the length of the trail and identified the many sections like the one above where there is cracked and crumbling asphalt wide horizontal gaps, raised utility covers, and other problems with the trail. We collected GPS points and photos and submitted that data to VDOT so they could prioritize repaving locations. It's our hope that major sections will be fixed this summer. Attending the above meetings will help get that message across.
