It’s hard not to miss the construction going on along the Fairfax County Parkway between West Ox Road and Fox Mill Road. It seems like it’s been going on forever, but there are no signs indicating what they are doing. The mystery has at last been solved: it’s a replacement for a water main being overseen by Fairfax Water.
Corbalis to Fox Mill Water Main
To serve the growing demand in western Fairfax County, Fairfax Water must expand the capacity of the water transmission system. The first phase of this water main from the water treatment plant to New Dominion Parkway was constructed in 2001.
The new 54-inch pipeline will extend this main to the Fox Mill Pumping Station just south of Fox Mill Road. The additional transmission capacity provided by the new water main will benefit all customers in the western part of Fairfax County.
The project includes the construction of approximately 12,000-feet of new 54-inch diameter water main along the east side of the Fairfax County Parkway (Route 7100) from south of Fox Mill Road (Route 665) to south of New Dominion Parkway. The new water main parallels an existing 48-inch diameter water main that was installed in the 1970’s. The new water main will be constructed in existing easements and right-of-way.
You can read the full new release. Don’t wait for it to be completed soon. The project won’t complete for another year.
