JUST IN: Swinks Mill Road in McLean Closed, Awaiting Repairs

Another McLean road requires lengthy repairs after suffering damage from Monday’s major flash flooding.

In addition to Kirby Road’s closure due to severe storm damage, Swinks Mill Road by Scott’s Run is also closed, Jennifer McCord, a spokeswoman for the Virginia Department of Transportation, told Tysons Reporter.

“We are making plans for permanent repairs at all locations that will likely take at least several weeks,” McCord said.

The two roads are the only remaining ones closed in Fairfax County for long-term repairs, McCord said.

“Crews worked around the clock on cleanup this week, clearing debris, assessing damages and making temporary repairs to reopen roads, and continued to respond to heavy rains received yesterday evening,” McCord said.
