A Tysons project that's not mega
I thought that was very likely, too, since it seems that just about every turned over bit of dirt in Tysons can be traced to one of the two megaprojects in the area. That is, either the HOT lanes construction near the Beltway or the Dulles Metrorail project along Route 123 and 7.
Since the Spring Hill Road work is so near Route 7, it seemed logical to lump it with the Metrorail project, now in full swing.
Not so: Spring Hill Road between Route 7 and International Drive is being widened from two to four lanes in a $4.2 million project launched in April. The project, scheduled to be done in October 2010, is funded by the Virginia Department of Transportation, but the design and construction have been managed by Fairfax County government. It's not connected with the rail project.
