Having grown up in and been driving on Springfield VA roads for a long time it is easy for me to drive the local roads almost by remote control. Shoot when I attended Washington Irving Intermediate School, Old Keene Mill Road was two lanes not the divided 4 lane road it is today. And no I didn't walk 5 miles uphill both ways to get to school so let's not go there.
Now the long anticipated completion of the Fairfax County Parkway is well underway. The first phase of the project is a re-alignment of Rolling Road and roads leading into the new National Geospatial Intellegence Agency. For residents of the Saratoga neighborhood off in Springfield the entrance to their neighborhood will be altered as a side road exit from the new Fairfax County Parkway extension.
Heads up if you are driving down Rolling Road East. Keep an eye out for the new detours. Don't put your brain on remote control or you may find yourself needing an off-road vehicle.
