UPDATE: Detour, Lane Shift Planned for One Block of Old Meadow Road Extended through Wednesday, Nov.18
Striping, alternating single-lane closures, set for Thursday, Nov.19
The final paving work for the realignment of Old Meadow Road with Capital One Tower Drive at Route 123 (Dolley Madison Boulevard) will require an extension through Wednesday, Nov. 18, to complete milling and paving along eastbound Old Meadow Road. Final striping is planned for Thursday, Nov. 19, and will require a lane shift and partial detour. Fairfax Police has been informed about the extension.
Weather permitting, on Wednesday, Nov. 18, eastbound/inbound traffic from Route 123 will use a detour via Colshire Drive and Chain Bridge Road (formerly Colshire Meadow Drive) to access Old Meadow during the paving work. Westbound/outbound traffic will use a single lane on Old Meadow. See Day 2 Map below.
On Thursday, Nov. 19, an alternating single lane will be closed along Old Meadow to permit striping. Traffic will be maintained in both directions with the closed lane shifting throughout the day.
The parking lot at 1690 Old Meadow Road as well as the CityLine property will remain accessible during this work. A public notice will be distributed today, and signs will be posted to direct traffic.
