The Commonwealth Transportation Board voted on April 15, 2009 to fully fund Phases 3 and 4 of the completion of the Fairfax County Parkway.

The State of Virginia had set aside funds to complete Phase I & II. Phases III and IV have been made possible by the 15% of Federal Stimulus Package funds received by the state for transportation.

A bi-partisan group of representatives in Springfield, VA fought for these funds to stay in Northern Virginia.  Delegate Dave Albo, Delegate Vivian Watts and Senator George Barker actively campaigned the the Governor, the Secretary of Transportation and the CTB to fully fund the Fairfax County Parkway. 

This is welcome news for the people of Springfield, and specifically those living near and around the Engineering Proving Ground of Fort Belvoir, which is located just south of the intersection of Routes 7100 and 7900 and Rolling Road. The building that will house 9,000 top secret jobs can already been seen being built on the compound. It is expected that thousands more government contracting jobs will also come to the area as a result of the government job increase.

Here is a link to the full stimulus funding report from the April 15th meeting.  The key page is page 9

And here a link to the construction site explaining  the full Fairfax County Pkwy. project.

Thanks to Delegate Dave Albo for providing this timely information!
