This is an update regarding the Route 50 Widening Project in Western Fairfax and Eastern Loudoun Counties.
Starting late this evening, the new third lane will open to eastbound traffic in segments, and by Thursday, August 28, three lanes will be open eastbound from Poland Road in Loudoun County to Route 28 in Fairfax County–the full length of the construction project.
VDOT expects to open the new third lane to westbound traffic by early 2015.
Route 50 is being widened to three lanes in each direction from Poland Road to Route 28. The project also includes traffic signal and turn lane improvements, installing a shared-use path on both sides of the road, providing crosswalks with curb ramps and pedestrian signals, and widening and upgrading bridges.
Thank you for your patience while traveling through the construction zone.
