Fairfax City Postpones Downtown Switch to Two Way Traffic

Fairfax City officials announced today that they will delay plans to convert Main and North Streets to two-way traffic until next summer to avoid potential conflicts with other ongoing construction efforts related to the downtown redevelopment project.


The city had planned to make the conversion from one-way traffic on the parallel streets this fall, but Mayor Robert F. Lederer said, "This short delay will give some needed breathing space for other downtown redevelopment projects to getunderway without having to logistically compete with the traffic system change."
