2014 Paving Requests from 44th District Constituent Survey


Name Zip Code Virginia's transportation funding shortfall reached epidemic proportions. Last year, the legislature adopted measure to fund our maintenance shortfall and smaller construction projects, but there is a massive maintenance backlog including many roads here in the 44th District. What roads in our community are most in need of resurfacing? Please be specific as to longer roads.

Richard Burkard

Hwy 1 north of woodlawn

I know West Braddock Road and Fort Hunt Road could probably stand to be resurfaced.

John Tolleris

Alan J. Warshawer

"Most in need"? How would I know, I have not traveled on all the roads in the district. That is why we have a transportation Dept - to deermne the requirements.

Martin Tillett

22306

All roads in the Spring Bank Community. They are presently crumbling and patched all over. More so now that ever since new water pipes are being installed. Oak Drive, Dawn Drive, Phillips Drive, Fairview Drive, Beddoo Street, Fleming Street, Hillside Lane

JoAnn Molnar

Belle View Blvd. has tons of pot holes between Fort Hunt Road to the GW Parkway.

Brad Smith

Courtland Rd

Pam Williams

22306

Despite a relatively recent fix to Ft Hunt Road, it is yet again becoming a pothole filled route...at least from Belle View Road up to Hollin Hall. The entire neighborhood of Hollin Hills with one or two exceptions hasn't seen street repairs in years. Also the dog leg portion of Huntington between Rt. 1 and Ft. Hunt Road was partially paved but not entirely and now the unimproved portion is getting bad.

Bryan Jacobs

Fort Hunt Road has deteriorated recently, lots of new potholes. In addition to resurfacing, too many roads are lacking shoulders, street lights, sidewalks and curbs, are not pedestrian-friendly. Keep in mind, for people to use public transpotation such as buses, they have to walk there first and last.

I do not know, but I am concerned about accidents at the intersection of Fort Hunt and Paul Spring Roads and would like to see a dedicated, north-bound, left-turn lane on Fort Hunt Road.

Thomas Tolley

22306

I would widen Rt 1 first, then resurface Huntington lane

Allison Elder

22306

I'm not sure--mine are all decent.

John Tanner

22306

Most of the roads needing resurfacing that deal with are on private property or Military bases, so I have no opinion.

Stephen Kitterman

22306

My biggest complaint is the recessed manhole covers in Rt 1 so I will say Rt 1. Transportation engineer's do not condone or approve resurfacing a road without resetting the manhole covers. There are hundreds in a few short miles that people, me included, are constantly dodging. It needs to be fixed. Northern Va needs more $s from Richmond for road maintenance. The fact Lee District had to fund the Kings Hwy/Telegraph road effort is simply a shame. The Groveton neighborhood roads: Groveton Street, Clayborne Avenue, Grove Rd and Spring Drive are in need of resurfacing and improvement. numerous as you know, BUT, YOU should also ask whether or not apparent frequent road deterioration is or is not related to inadequate standards and/or shoddy previous road contractor or public road repair.

Alice Kitterman

22306

US Route 1 between Ft Belvoir (Groveton/Hybla Valley) to Old Town Alexandria has many potholes.

Tracey Serle

22306

We need to do better quality work on the roads we do resurface. It has been only a few years since Fort Hunt Road underwent resurfacing along most of its length and it is pitted with potholes again. I must have hit every one driving home after dark last Sunday night. I didn't realize that there were so many and I have been looking for them now while driving around in the day light. There are a LOT. There shouldn't be this many already so perhaps we'd better do a higher quality job on resurfacing so that we aren't socked with repeated need to make the same repairs every few years.

Edna Rogers

22307

although the residential roads are in bad condition, i believe the major roads need to be widened. route 1, the GW parkway, telegraph road, are major public access and cause much angst to the local residents. Fort Hunt between Rt 1 and Morningside has developed quite a few potholes this winter, and they are getting bigger. Otherwise I don't really see any serious problems on the roads I drive.

Matthew Duchesne

22307

Significant secondary feeder roads, such as Quander and Fairhaven, which carry a lot of local traffic to the Huntington Metro Station, as well as parts of Fort Hunt and parts of Sherwood Hall Lane. Thanks to VDOT's inexperienced snow crew's work three years ago, Stafford Rd. now resembles a third world road. Again, most of my driving is done on Fort Hunt Road and it is in abysmal condition right now. Certainly maintaining our current infrastructure (particularly large feeder roads like Fort Hunt Rd.) would be a priority.

Can't think of any but will have this question in mind as I move around the district and will report to your office if I find some. Collingwood from Riverside to Ft Hunt. Tree roots and wash outs develop considerable pot holes every few months. Elkin near Wittington is a bit tough. The other major roads I travel seem in decent shape.

Fort Hunt and Collingwood Roads could both use bicycle lanes, which could be easily accomplished by doing away with open ditches in favor of underground rainwater management with bike trails on top. In addition to resurfacing Collingwood Rd needs to have blind spots removed by regrading to flatten the road more between Fort Hunt and Parker's Lane.

Martijn Rasser

22308

Fort Hunt Road between Morningside and Vernon View is an absolute disaster. Many third world countries have nicer roads. Even the stretch of Fort Hunt that was most recently repaved is already showing significant wear and tear leading me to question the quality of the work done. There should be sidewalks along the whole stretch of the road and paved surfaces at every bus stop.

It would be ideal if Fort Hunt Road could have an extra lane, too.

Fort Hunt Road from Sherwood Hall Lane south to the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Catherine 22308 While Fairfax Rd., Washington Rd, Yorktown Dr. and Lafayette Dr. need resurfacing, the increased construction trucks due to the buy one lot and build 2 houses fire sale at the expense of those living on these streets does not make those streets a good resurfacing project as the heavy construction trucks would ruin the resurfacing job.

Fort Hunt Road has many potholes and cracks that threaten larger problems in the future.

Evan Morris

22308

Fort Hunt Road has some big potholes.

Dana Grimm

22308

Fort hunt road is again in need of repair. I have to wonder if subpar surfacing material etc is being used because of costs and this then necessitates continuous resurfacing,

Bob Crow

22308

Fort Hunt road is in terrible condition, as are Riverside and Collingwood.

Claire Prechtel-Kluskens

22308

Fort Hunt Road is just terrible - all the parts not paved last year [?]

Ft. Hunt Road needs to have a storm sewer installed instead of ditches and then widened from Rt. 1 to Collingwood and repaved its entire length. Washington Road, Fairfax Road, Wellington Road , Lafayette and Yorktown have been destroyed by Gerry Hyland's infill project. So they should all be repaved.

None come to mind - perhaps sections of Fort Hunt Road near Paul Springs or Collingwood Road between Fort Hunt Road and Riverside, although the potholes in those locations have been fixed.

Open a map, close your eyes, put your finger down on it, open your eyes and there you go. Roads are getting so bad it's embarrassing.

Erin Wirth

22308

Rt 1, mulligan new rd, morning side lane

Christina Swartz

22308

Somehow, again, Fort Hunt rd. (between Collingwood Rd. and say Vernon view) is in need of resurfacing. Please don't use that gravel fill method! It's a patch at best, and at worst is an absolute nightmare for cyclists, because it has the texture of sand initially. The area of Fort Hunt Road, particularly between the GW Parkway and Sherwood Hall is pretty rough. Collingwood Road is quite unsafe and it seems more and more pedestrians use Collingwood Rd and there is just no shoulder at all and with the hills it's very easy to come right up on a pedestrian when you're driving.

Kyle Burke

Christian Tamotsu Fjeld

22308

There are many roads that need maintenance and I fully support increasing the gasoline tax and indexing it to inflation in order to pay for such maintenance.

Dave

22308

There are storm drains, curbs and sidewalks on my street (Bainbridge Rd) are falling apart. Water runs down the street all year long and freezes well into the road in winter. It's a shame.

Scott Savage

Barbara Mulvaney

22309

Can't think of any road that is worse than others in the area - I would rather see the money spent on putting sidewalks on Rt1 and feeder roads but know it won't happen.

John Dinan

22309

Driving on these roads makes the answer obvious.

Wayne

22309

Everyone pays some tax for the highways, but then tax each vehicle using modern electrical equipment and bill the charge card, based of use. If you use the road, then pay for it! In this way the companies would move to where the people live or the people would move near the companies. You can NOT build the roads, everyone will keep on moving farther out. And then complain when the new road gets full when it is no longer the fast highway!

James Byrne

22309

Fort Hunt Road to Route 1.

Fort Hunt. Old Mill. Keith Kerr 22309 We need sidewalks and paths on those routes so there is hope for other than car transportation.

I mostly travel on Route 1 and have little knowledge on on this topic.

Janet McMillan

22309

I'm not sure if this is what you are asking, but Fairfax County Parkway North at the intersection with Loisdale desperately needs a right-turn lane. Traffic backs up in the right lane from Loisdale to the interchage with Telegraph Road because the right lane of Fairfax County Parkway north is both the right turn lane to get on to Loisdale and the exit to 95 North.

Maryland St has been resurfaced twice, maybe three times, in the 10 years I've lived here. WHY? Tess Ailshire 22309 Very few need re-surfacing, in my experience. Many could benefit from well-done patches (which is not "dump a bunch of asphalt in the hole".

Route 1 from Mowhawk Lane up until Beacon Mall. Lots of potholes!

Route 1 needs to be resurfaced. There looks to be like a resurface of one side of the outside lanes closer to Ft. Belvoir, not sure who decided on that. But that can be a hazard. Chris Marbaker 22309 On a separate note, our street needs speed control devices installed. We have drivers that miss the stop sign and they drive up to speeds of 50 mph.

Lauren Preston

22309

The section of Route 1 that seems plagued by water main breaks - near the top of the hill where the mall where Giant is needs to be smoothed out. Also, the intersection where the new Walmart was put in near Huntington is terrible - there are too many intersecting roads and turns that the light timing cannot handle it. That area needs to be re-engineered.

E. H. Harper

22309

There are some places along Route 1 that need repair, but I travel mostly the major roads that have been repaired and are in fairly good condition. This shortfall is inexcusable. I primarily drive Highway One and less frequently Old Mount Vernon Highway. Certainly Highway One must be kept us as best we can while making the expansions. I don't have as much input on this question.

There are pot holes surrounding Hayfield and we just drive carefully to avoid damage to our vehicles. I accept the fact that I can't oppose new road repair taxes and expect top notch road surfaces. Life goes on with a few extra bump and the worst pot holes will eventually get fixed.

Patricia A. Freeman

223009-1703

Route 1 definitely is in need of repaving as are many of the roads which intersect Route 1 at traffic lights. I live on Highland Lane and it is in deplorable condition when you consider there is an elementary school and a church on this road. Highland Lane is also used as a cut through to Route 1 since the closure of Woodlawn Road when 9/11 occurred.
