if youve driven the Parkway around Fair Lakes you know about the coonstruction. Was there last night and saw they had scraped up the grass in the median around and under 66 and are putting in and extra lane on each side.
What I want to know is why cant this be done on the whole damn parkway?
Would anybody be against losing the grass?

Interesting to see what they would do between Hooes and Lee Chapel but yeah, I'd like to see at least 6 lanes from Ft. Belvoir to 7.

The entire Fairfax County Parkway is a four lane road constructed on enough right-of-way for six lanes. Ultimately the parkway will be widened to six lanes with a Jersey barrier down the median and a closed drainage system (instead of the grassy swale in the median). But this will be tremendously expensive and isn't going to happen anytime soon. And forget HOV lanes or toll lanes until every intersection is eliminated and the whole road is made into a limited access freeway. For now, the most you'll see are spot widenings, like NB FCPW between Braddock Road and Lee Highway,

I just want the stop light at Popes Head removed. No need for that light to accomadate a few cars a day. They can enter either by stop sign or go up to Braddock Rd entrance or south to Burke Centre Pkwy entrance. But stop making me wait I am just that important.

Fuck, just make them U turn a 1/4 mile down the road each way. That would still be quicker then waiting at the late (if on popes head)
