BRAC Changing the Face of the Fort Belvoir Area

Fairfax County Parkway Extension in Springfield VA
The evidence of the BRAC deadline for development and movement of personnel is starting to take shape in the Fort Belvoir area.  Not only can you drive through the main post and see the changes but outside the gates local neighborhoods can see the impact as well.

Two of the most visible projects in Springfield include the extension of the Fairfax County Parkway along Rolling Road and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency building.   The final leg of the FXC Parkway has been on the books for years waiting funding.  The push to ease the impact of 6500 personnel headed to the new National Geospatial Intelligence Agency building at the old Engineering Proving Grounds in Springfield has made the road a reality. 

Now as you exit the parkway at Rolling Road instead of seeing the woods and fences that hid the grounds from sight you see the long stretch of future roadway and the dust from earthmovers.  Utility lines along Rolling Road by the Saratoga neighborhood are being moved in anticipation of the widening of the roadway there as well.  The new NGA building is a little harder to spot but you can see it emerging from the tree tops off of Fullerton Road.

National Geospatial Intellegance Agency Fort Belvoir
The good news for local businesses like one of my favorites, Saratoga Pizzeria is that a portion of those incoming 6500 personnel are going to be looking for a place to eat lunch.   Homeowners in the Saratoga, Terra Grande, Springfield Oaks and Lorton Station neighborhoods thinking of selling in the near future may also benefit as well.   Though only a small portion of the new jobs coming to the area due to BRAC are from outside our region, there are transferees coming and they are looking in neighborhoods close to Fort Belvoir.

Cindy, OK, now I'm getting really hungry for pizza!  And I'm still trying to lose a few from our lunch!

BRAC is what? I'm an old military guy and I know it stands for something; I just do not know for what. Thanks in advance for the clarification.

Robert-that would be Base Realigment and Closure.  Big deal for the Fort Belvoir area as 21,000 jobs are shifting to the area!
