Fairfax County Board OKs Funding for Traffic Light at Fox Mill Road

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to bring a long-awaited traffic light to the intersection of Fox Mill and Pincecrest Roads.

At a meeting on Tuesday, the board approved a resolution that authorizes a partnership to install a light signal and construct left-turn lanes in the intersection.

The intersection has been the site of 38 accidents in the past five years and has drawn concern from residents due to lack of safety.

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn said he looks forward to the completion of the project.

“This has been a while coming but it is here,” he said.

Preliminary engineering for the project is expected to cost $900,00, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation. That phase is expected to begin in the fall.

The county will likely be responsible to pay $4.8 million for the right-of-way and construction phases of the project. But additional sources of funding may reduce out-of-pocket costs from the county’s coffers.
