The ramps from I-66 West to Stringfellow Road in Chantilly, and from Stringfellow Road in Chantilly to I-66 East, are scheduled to be closed for about eight weeks. This action is needed for continued construction of the new configuration of these ramps. The closure began this week and is anticipated to remain in place through approximately Monday, Sept. 5.
This work is part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project. Drivers should expect delays if traveling in the area and use alternate routes. I-66 over Stringfellow Road is being widened to accommodate the new, I-66 express lanes and provide room for any future mass transit along I-66. The I-66 ramps at Stringfellow Road are being modified to add full-time, express-lanes access to and from the east.
‘Hidden in Plain Sight’ for Parents of Teens
Fairfax County police are offering a hands-on, learning adventure for parents and guardians of teenagers. Called “Hidden in Plain Sight,” it’ll be held Wednesday, July 20, from 6:30-8:45 p.m., at the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly.
Attendees will be guided through a presentation opening their eyes to what’s right in front of them. This program begins with a setup of a teenager’s bedroom which includes close to 100 “red flags” indicating risky behavior. Parents are encouraged to touch everything and identify these red flags.
Afterward is a PowerPoint presentation detailing the red-flag props the room contained and how they indicate or are used in risky behavior. Police include up-to-date statistics and local trends, and law-enforcement officers will share experiences they’ve had in the community identifying risky behavior and helping put teens on the right path to a healthy life.
