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 Fullerton Roads and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) building. The final leg of the Fairfax County Parkway has been on the books for years waiting funding. The push to ease the impact of 8500 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.
Now that the road work is well underway some nearby neighborhoods are starting to realize that what they though would never happen is indeed true as shown in this
Fox 5 News Clip.
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.
