Route 28/Walney Road Entrance to E.C. Lawrence Park Closing

The Route 28/Walney Road entrance to Ellanor C. Lawrence Park (ECLP) will be closed beginning on or about May 1, 2019 and is expected to remain closed for more than a year. During that time, the only vehicular access to ECLP from Route 28 will be via Westfields Boulevard to Walney Road on the north side of the park. Walney Road will be closed to traffic between Route 28 and Cabell’s Mill Road inside the park.

The park will remain open, and all planned classes and activities will be held as scheduled. Vehicle access to the park’s Walney Visitor Center will remain available through the park’s north entrance.

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) says the Route 28 interchange with I-66 is being reconstructed to improve traffic flow and safety, and to provide new connections between Route 28, I-66 and the interstate’s express lanes. The improvements will require traffic pattern changes during construction. As part of the project, the Park Authority is working with VDOT to improve pedestrian and bicycle access from the communities on both the east and west sides of the park.

FCPA(Fairfax County Park Authority)는 Northern Virginia의 중요 간선 도로 중의 하나인 Route 28과 국도 I-66 의 병목현상을 개선하고자 버지니아 교통국과 함께 현재 도로 정비 사업을 하고 있다. I-66은 버지니아의 동과 서를 이어주는 중요 국도로서 워싱턴 디시로 향하는 길이며, 28은 프린스 윌리엄 카운티와 페어펙스 카운티를 남과 북으로 관통하는 중요 간선도로 이다. 페어펙스 공원 관리국은 이 공사를 위해  28번길과 I-66 의 코너에 있는 공원을 오는 5월 1일 부터 당분간 통제할 것이라고 밝혔다.

향후 적어도 1년동안은 남부 입구쪽은 통제되어 공원을 사용하려는 사람은 적어도 북쪽 입구쪽을 통해 공원을 이용해야한다고 말했다. 공원은 열고, 남쪽 입구를 경유해서 공원 가는 길은 막힌다는 뜻이다.
