Metrorail Blue and Yellow Line stations south of National Airport will be closed this summer
There will be NO Metrorail service beginning May 25, through Sept. 8, from the Franconia-Springfield, Van Dorn, and Huntington Metrorail Stations in Fairfax County. Plan now and know your travel options from express bus service to ridesharing and telework. Do not get in your car and drive alone as this would make things worse by creating gridlock on our roads and result in travel delays for all: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/transportation/travel-alerts/metro-platforms
Fairfax County's Joint Environmental Task Force Seeks Members
Fairfax County's Joint Environmental Task Force is looking for residents to join this group that focuses on climate change, energy and other environmental issues.
The task force ;mdash called JET for short ;mdash was jointly created in April by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board. The JET is currently composed of two members from each board:
Board of Supervisors Mason District Supervisor and Chair of the Environmental Committee Penny Gross.
Board of Supervisors Mount Vernon District Supervisor Dan Storck.
School Board Chair and Mount Vernon District Representative Karen Corbett Sanders.
School Board Hunter Mill District Representative Pat Hynes.
Designated members of these two boards have been meeting to draft a mission statement and develop a process for selecting community membership on the JET. The overall membership is anticipated to include business, industry, higher education representatives, and students, as well as community members with skill sets to work on climate change, energy and other environmental issues.
For more information, contact the Mason District Supervisor's office at 703-256-7717, TTY 711, or the Mount Vernon District Supervisor's office at 703-780-7518, TTY 711.
The DMV is expanding Saturday hours on July 6th and 13th at the Fairfax, Westfields, and Manassas locations
These service centers will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m to accommodate the increase influx of customers. The normal hours of operations on Saturdays are 8:00 a.m. to noon.
Starting July 1st, the DMV will be implementing the restoration of driving privileges for individuals suspended solely for failure to pay court fines and costs. This, in addition to REAL ID compliance, will likely contribute to longer lines and wait times at the DMV's customer service centers.
To best mitigate additional customer traffic, constituents are encouraged to take advantage of DMV alternative services (dmvNOW.com, mail, DMV Selects, and mobile operations) for routine services.
