Map of the work area and turning restrictions for Kenmore Drive in Fairfax.

City of Fairfax motorists should be aware of a lane closure on Kenmore Drive, beginning on Monday, Feb. 17. Access restrictions on this road are necessary for a water-main relocation required as part of the Chain Bridge Road bridge-replacement project scheduled to begin in late March. The changes are as follows:

  • Kenmore Drive between Chain Bridge Road and Mason Street will be one way westbound. The eastbound lane in this area will be closed to traffic.

  • Right turns will be permitted from Kenmore Drive onto northbound Chain Bridge Road.

  • No left turns will be permitted onto Chain Bridge Road from Kenmore Drive.

*No left turns will be permitted onto Kenmore Drive from southbound Chain Bridge Road.

  • No right turns will be permitted onto Kenmore Drive from northbound Chain Bridge Road.

These restrictions will remain in place during the bridge-replacement construction. In addition, when this bridge work actually begins, the City will implement a detour for northbound Chain Bridge Road. City residents will be notified about it in advance, prior to the bridge demolition. Until that time, Chain Bridge Road will remain open in both directions.
