According to, “Springfield District Supervisor Pat Herrity announced on Twitter the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors’ approval of the design and project.”

Herrity said in an email, “This project eliminates a major east-west bottleneck and will provide a continuous six-lane road, with bike and pedestrian facilities from Fairfax City to Centreville”

As per, “A shared-use path will be added and/or improved along both sides of Lee Highway and connect to pedestrian/bicycle trails up at the Fairfax County Parkway-West Ox Road interchange. The process of buying up property needed to widen the highway will begin early next year. Construction is expected to begin in late 2022.”
