Fairfax Connector adjusting for Friday motorcycle ride

Because of the big 9/11 memorial motorcycle ride passing through Northern Virginia on Friday afternoon, the Fairfax Department of Transportation anticipates heavy congestion on many of its roadways. The Fairfax Connector service is making temporary adjustments.

West Falls Church Metro station. To transport the most passengers, trips will operate at capacity. About 20 buses will be staged at West Falls Church to begin afternoon service at 3 p.m.

Routes 425 and 427 will operate to and from the Metro south-side bus bays. Routes 505 and 555 will operate a normal route but will make a final stop at the Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride. Routes 950 and 980 will operate a normal route, carrying the balance of Fairfax Connector passengers to Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride, where buses for routes 551, 552, 553, 554, 557, 585, 951 and 952 will be waiting to transport passengers along their normal routes.

A shuttle will operate between Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride and Franconia-Springfield Metro station via the Fairfax County Parkway between 2:30 and 7 p.m.

Crystal City and Pentagon Metro stations. Routes 595 and 597 will not operate Friday afternoon. Passengers can take the Orange Line to West Falls Church, where they can board Route 505 to Reston North Park and Ride.

Route 380D will operate between Franconia-Springfield and Backlick North and Gambrill Road Park and Ride lots.
