The project will reconstruct and widen 1.5 miles of roadway from four to six lanes, relieving a major bottleneck during peak hours. The project will also correct vertical alignment to improve sight distance and provide connectivity to pedestrian/bicycle trails at the Fairfax County Parkway/West Ox Road interchange.
“VDOT is pleased to deliver important multimodal transportation projects that enhance living and working in this great community,” said Bill Cuttler, P.E., VDOT's Northern Virginia Deputy District Engineer. “We appreciate users' patience and attention to safety as we work toward our performance goals.”
“Transportation investments like this one remove barriers, create connections, and help people get where they're going safely,” said Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay.
The $97 million project is financed with federal, state (including Smart Scale), and county funding and the I-66 concession fee. Shirley/Dewberry is the design-build contractor for the project, scheduled for completion in spring 2026.
