Signals Dark as Commuters Go Back to Work

–Route 123/International Drive

–Route 7/Beulah

–Route 50/Gallows Road

–West Ox Road/Fair Lakes Parkway

–Route 1/Telegraph Road

–Lorton Road/I-95

–Hummer Road/Gallows Road

–Fort Hunt/Belle Haven

–Baron Cameron/Fairfax County Parkway

–Reston Parkway/Lawyers Road

–Route 50/Stringfellow Road

All intersections in eastern Prince William County should now have power, police announced Sunday.


High Occupancy Vehicle restrictions are lifted this morning on Interstate 66 inside of the Capital Beltway.
