(Editor's note: We've pulled information from The Herrity Report that includes this news about local road paving in the area. The report is released by Supervisor Pat Herrity of the Springfield District.)
VDOT has heard our numerous requests to give some much needed attention to Old Keene Mill Road and a project to repave it from the Fairfax County Parkway to Elder Avenue in Central Springfield is planned to be advertised and awarded this summer. The repaving work will also include the section of Franconia Road from S. Van Dorn Street to Telegraph Road. Though VDOT cannot provide us a 100% guarantee as to when the work will be completed, it plans to have the work done by the end of the year.
After years of neglect and underfunding the money from the new transportation bill passed by the General Assembly and signed by Governor McDonnell is finally making its way to the NoVa VDOT District office and into our roads. I know we have a lot of needs throughout the district and the County and I am working with VDOT to get them addressed.
