Fairfax County Parkway
(Updated July 2012)
Widen to 6-8 lanes between the Dulles Toll Road (Route 267) and US 50. Ultimately widen other portions and replace traffic signals with grade separations.
It took nearly 30 years after planning began to complete construction of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286), formerly known as the Springfield Bypass. The 35-mile Parkway connects Route 1 in southern Fairfax County with Route 7 in the north.
1. Fair Lakes Parkway/Monument Drive Intersections
Grade separating the intersections of Monument Drive and the Fair Lakes Parkway and widening the road from four to six lanes between one-half mile south of I-66 east and Rugby Road.
Cost: $69.5 million
Construction Start: Fall 2010
Completion: Late 2013

2. Rolling Road to Fullerton Road (EPG Segment)
Completion of this 2.5 mile segment took on greater significance not only as a vital I-95 connector but also in light of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission decision which will bring 12,900 civilian and military jobs to the Engineering Proving Grounds and Fort Belvoir.
Construction of the four-lane segment through the EPG, a partial cloverleaf interchange connecting the Parkway to Rolling Road and the EPG access road and Boudinot Drive loop ramp are complete.
Completion of the relocation of Hooes and Rolling Road and related interchange improvments is expected in August 2012.
3. Northbound 1-95 Flyover Ramp
Construct a flyover ramp from norhtbound I-95 to northbound Fairfax County Parkway.
Is funded for preliminary engineering and design, but not right-of-way acquisition or construction.
