Details:

  • As a result of the completion of the Northfax project which broke ground approximately two and a half years ago, the community and commuters alike will benefit from the intersection improvements and drainage and storm water infrastructure improvements at this critical intersection in Northern Virginia.
  • The Northfax Intersection will increase capacity, improve pedestrian mobility and safety, improve traffic flow and eliminate flooding in the intersection. As a part of the evaluation process for the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority FY2015-16 program, it was found the Northfax Intersection improvements are projected to save a total of 450,000 plus person-hours of delay by 2040.
  • The project includes:
    • Improving the intersection of Fairfax Blvd. and Chain Bridge Road.
    • Adding turn lane improvements on all approaches.
    • Installing four new traffic signals to improve vehicular and pedestrian mobility.
    • Eliminating roadway flooding in intersection.
    • Widening Chain Bridge Road to six lanes between Fairfax Blvd. and Eaton Place.
