I-66 Ramp Closures in Centreville
Continued reconstruction and paving of the permanent ramp from I-66 West to Route 28 South will require closure of the ramp during daytime hours, this Thursday, Nov. 10. Also that date, during the evening, crews will close the ramp from I-66 West to Stringfellow Road for continued construction.
This ramp will reopen later this year as a full-time, Express Lanes-only ramp and will no longer provide access from the I-66 general-purpose lanes to Stringfellow. Both changes are part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway Project.
Warm Gloves for Children Still Needed
Last winter, a Sully District police crossing guard noticed many children walking to school without gloves. So with his own money, he bought and gave them gloves. This year, Sully police are hosting a Lil Hands Glove Drive so he may continue giving gloves to students in need. Police will then deliver them to local schools.
Please drop off or mail new gloves (for ages 5-12) to the Sully District Station, 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly. A large labeled black collection bin will be available in the lobby at all times. This drive has been extended until Monday, Nov. 14. For more information, email Megan.Hawkins@fairfaxcounty.gov.
Car Seat Inspections, Nov. 17
Parents may get their children’s car seats inspected on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 5-8:30 p.m., outside the Sully District Police Station. It’s at 4900 Stonecroft Blvd. in Chantilly. Inspections are done on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are asked to wear a mask and adhere to social-distancing and safety precautions.
They should also install the child safety seat themselves, so the inspection can be performed. The seat will be properly re-installed, if necessary, and parents will be taught how to install the seat properly. Another car-seat inspection is scheduled for Dec. 1, at the same place and time.
Scouts May Tour Sully Police Station
