Information about paving and restriping in the Mount Vernon District will be on display in an open house format with a presentation at 7:30 p.m.

Portions of nearly 40 streets with be repaved with Furnace Road from Lorton Road to Route 1 and Hooes Road between Ox Road and the Fairfax County Parkway being two of the longest sections. A nearly three-mile long section of Pohick Road from Southrun Road to Rolling Road also will be repaved. 

If unable to attend, community members are invited to give feedback on general traffic safety concerns regarding roads scheduled for paving, and the proposed striping changes by submitting comments online via the comment form on the paving and restriping program page here.
