Delays ahead at Fairfax Parkway/Route 50

Avoid the area around the interchange at Route 50 and the Fairfax County Parkway this weekend, or get stuck in what's likely to be a big traffic delay. The Virginia Department of Transportation is rebuilding an older portion of the parkway in Fair Lakes, and these weekend lane closings are part of that $69.5 million project, partially funded by the federal stimulus.
