I-95 RAMP TO FAIRFAX COUNTY PARKWAY OPENS WEDNESDAY, DEC. 29

On Wednesday, Dec. 29, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will open Fairfax County Parkway Exit 166B from I-95 south to Fairfax County Parkway north, making it easier and faster for motorists heading to the Fort Belvoir North Area and other destinations in Fairfax County.

At 9 a.m. Dec, 29, crews will close the right lane on I-95 between the Springfield-Franconia Parkway (Route 7900) and the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 7100) overpass. At noon, crews will begin removing traffic control devices, and by 1:30 p.m., the exit ramp will be open to traffic.

The ramp will offer motorists two options: Fairfax County Parkway on the left, or the newly opened Heller Road on the right, which goes into the Fort Belvoir North Area. This is where the National Geospatial Agency (NGA) is located. On Tuesday, Jan. 18, the NGA will begin admitting new employees.

VDOT closed Exit 166B in November 2009 so crews could widen the existing bridge and ramp to handle increased traffic to the new Fairfax County Parkway segment and the NGA, which is part of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) developments in the area. Another NGA access at Barta Road and the Fairfax County Parkway will open on January 7.

This ramp was part of the initial two phases of Fairfax County Parkway Extension construction that opened in mid-September. Work remaining on the parkway project includes the Boudinot Drive ramp and loop and the realignment of Rolling and Hooes roads.
