Gas Main Break May Cause Traffic Woes on Route to GMU Tonight

If you are planning on attending South Lakes High School’s 2014 Commencement Wednesday night at George Mason University’s Patriot Center, plan to avoid taking Route 123.

Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road) was shut down in both directions near Nutley Street in Fairfax about 3:30 p.m. due to a gas main break. It is expected to remain closed for several hours, which could cause major traffic backups, Fairfax County officials said.

SLHS commencement begins at 7:30 p.m.

A good alternate route to GMU from Reston is the Fairfax County Parkway to Braddock Road.
