Route 50 being widened, repaved in Va. counties of Fairfax & Loudoun

U.S. Route 50 is being widened from four lanes to six in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, a multi-year, $95 million construction project that will repave the road surfaces, widen and upgrade bridges, and create a 10-foot shared-use path on the north and south sides.

Three lanes eastbound should be completed and open to traffic by the fall, Virginia Department of Transportation Mega-Projects Director Susan Shaw told WTOP.

In other changes, several traffic signals will be added, and pedestrian signals will be added to crosswalks.
