This phase of the project included the final two miles of the four-lane Fairfax County Parkway, an interchange at the Fort Belvoir North Area access road and an extension of Boudinot Drive to provide an on-ramp to the southbound parkway.
Following the opening of the new Fairfax County Parkway segment, Rolling Road will be closed from Richfield Road to Chancellor Way for one year while crews build an overpass across the parkway. Through traffic on Rolling Road must use the parkway. Local traffic must use Barta Road to access Richfield Road from the south or Chancellor Way from the north.
By September 2011, the U.S. Army will relocate about 12,900 jobs to Fort Belvoir/Engineer Proving Ground and 7,000 jobs to the Mark Center in Alexandria as part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). These jobs will bring a vast influx of vehicles onto area roads.
Once the BRAC relocation is complete, employment at Fort Belvoir, the Fort Belvoir North Area and the Mark Center will total more than 43,000 jobs. The new employees will add thousands of vehicles onto area roads such as I-95, Route 1 and the Fairfax County Parkway.
