PSA: For the Noblis (and other Falls Church) people…

This just showed up in my email.

VDOT reports that drivers should expect intermittent lane closures at the intersection of Route 29 and Gallows Road in Merrifield. The work is expected to continue through the evening rush hour. Crews are performing emergency work on underground phone lines at the intersection.

You might want to plan accordingly.
