Now, Inova Mount Vernon Hospital received approval this week from the Fairfax County planning commission to build a new tower, a six-story parking garage and more, nearly doubling in size. That could make moving around on the east side of Route 1 awfully slow going.

“The hospital, Inova, has taken this whole thing and tried to ram it down the throats of everybody,” Queenie Cox, president of the New Gum Springs Civic Association, told The Post’s Freddy Kunkle on Thursday. Read Kunkle’s full story in the Virginia Politics blog.
