Federal stimulus funds worth $260m are set to be allocated for various road rehabilitation projects in North Virginia, US.

The counties of Loudoun, Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William in North Virginia will share the funds to carry out roadworks including the construction of a key interchange at Fair Lakes Parkway, completion of the Fairfax County Parkway and paving roads.

The funds will also be used to build an interchange to reduce traffic bottlenecks at the Fairfax and Fair Lakes intersection. The new interchange will convey passengers travelling on Fairfax Parkway over Fair Lakes Parkway, with ramps linking both.

Over $60m in funds will be allotted for the expansion of the Fairfax County Parkway, which will have to handle a surge of newcomers to Fort Belvoir.

The expansion will also connect Route 1 located in southeast Fairfax with Route 7, the highways with heavy traffic.

In addition, repaving work on Routes 7, 9 and 287 (three Loudoun roadways) as well as on Routes 1, 15, 28, 29, 55 and 234 (six Prince William highways) will be carried out with the funds.
