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.

New interchange in Newington

The Virginia Department of Transportation this afternoon plans to open the southbound lanes of Fullerton Road at its new interchange with the Fairfax County Parkway. On Thursday, drivers should be able to use the northbound lanes, as well. Motorists coming from Backlick Road will have direct access to Fullerton, which will pass beneath the new section of the parkway.
