Ramp Widening Project
Interchange Improvement at Rolling Road/Franconia-Springfield Parkway
Over the past year, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency went into operation, relocating an additional 4,500 Department of Defense employees to the new building at the Fort Belvoir North Area along the Fairfax County Parkway. Many of these employees travel to points west and north in the afternoon, using the Fairfax County Parkway, creating congestion at this ramp.
To help accommodate the surge in traffic, VDOT will construct an additional lane on this ramp, and a fourth auxiliary lane that extends to the Stream Way intersection. To access the ramp, there will be a signalized dual turn lane from Rolling Road.
The Franconia-Springfield Parkway three lane roadway section approaching the interchange from the east will drop one lane at the Rolling Road exit ramp. This will provide two lanes continuing north/west along the Fairfax County Parkway. The Fairfax County Parkway will gain two lanes at the two lane loop ramp merge, providing four lanes in this section of the Fairfax County Parkway. The fourth lane will extend to and end at the intersection of Stream Way. The third lane will continue to the Gambrill Road Interchange as it does today.
Other improvements include retaining walls and a paved shoulder along with a concrete median.
