In addition to the projects that began earlier in July (Phase I Announcement), over the next month, there are a few construction and maintenance projects happening around the Fairfax Campus that will have varying degrees of parking and traffic impacts.

Expect delays on Patriot Circle between George Mason Blvd. and Finley Lot and on George Mason Blvd. when entering campus from University Dr. as paving and striping work is being completed.
