Route 50 Lane Closures Set for Weekend of December 11-12
News, Transportation

From Springfield Governmental Center:

Construction work for the new interchange on the Fairfax County Parkway at Fair Lakes Parkway and Monument Drive is currently underway. On the weekend of December 11th and 12th, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will be driving new bridge piles in the vicinity of the Fairfax County Parkway bridge over Route 50 as part of this project. The noise associated with pile driving is so loud that the work cannot be done at night; therefore daytime lane closures during the weekend will be required while this work is done.  This operation will require double lane closures on eastbound and/or westbound Route 50 and single lane closures on the Fairfax County Parkway at this bridge location during the day.  VDOT anticipates these lane closures will cause major impacts to the traveling public both Saturday and Sunday, so drivers are strongly advised to use alternate routes.  VDOT will be placing variable message signs in the area approximately a week in advance of the work to warn and remind drivers of the upcoming closures.
