FYI: Partial Ramp Closure at Stringfellow and Fair Lakes Parkway

Drivers asked to use alternate routes

Drivers are asked to consider alternate routes for the next six to eight weeks as crews construct a retaining wall along the ramp from Fair Lakes Parkway to northbound Stringfellow Road, as part of the Stringfellow Road widening project.

Due to the deep excavations required to build the wall, the ramp from Fair Lakes Parkway to northbound Stringfellow has been closed, leaving a short right-turn lane near the traffic signal. Drivers are asked to use alternate routes to Route 50 such as the Fairfax County Parkway or through Fair Lakes Boulevard for local traffic. 

The $63 million project widens Stringfellow Road to two lanes in each direction from Fair Lakes Boulevard to Route 50. Traffic was shifted to the project’s new southbound lanes in early October, and work is on track to complete the northbound side to open all four lanes—including turn lanes and permanent signals—in December 2014, about six months ahead of schedule. The entire project is scheduled for completion in July 2015. View more project details:
