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.
Flood Update: All roads have reopened except Swinks Mill, Kirby & Princedale (long-term closures). Reopened roads may be a little rough, so pls use caution. Crews continue to assess damage & work on repairs. Report damage at https://t.co/12wxgee8pi or 800-FOR-ROAD. Thanks! pic.twitter.com/UBlvuum9NT
