Fairfax County Gives Details on Partial Tysons Blvd Closure Friday

A portion of Tysons Blvd will close later this week to give cyclists and pedestrians more room for outdoor activity.

Fairfax County announced today that one northbound lane of Tysons Blvd between International and Westbranch drives will temporarily close on Friday (May 29) at 5 p.m. How long the closure will last will depend on the county’s reopening guidelines, the county said.

“Even though there is a sidewalk along this stretch of road, this temporary closure will provide people a safer option, and more space for outdoor recreation while maintaining social distancing practices during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” according to the county.

People who live in the area will be able to access nearby amenities, including the Capital Bikeshare stations and a park at the corner of Westbranch Drive and Tysons Blvd.

Partial or full road closures are growing during the pandemic, WAMU reported.
