New trees replace mature ones torn down by Burke Lake Dam renovation.
When the renovation of Burke Lake Dam began last fall, many residents in the leafy South Run neighborhood were concerned about the dozens of mature trees construction crews had to rip out to gain access to the dam.
As the construction on the 95 Express Lanes project increases over the summer, motorists traveling to Virginia Beach, the Outer Banks in North Carolina as well as other points south should be aware that the HOV lanes will be closed overnight on weekdays and occasional weekends throughout the summer, and there will be intermittent lane closures overnight for steel erection and other work, making travel on the general purpose lanes challenging. In addition to the 95 Express Lanes project, there is also a shoulder improvement project underway on I-95 in Prince William County and a BRAC-related ramp work from the HOV lanes to the Fort Belvoir North Area that may impact travel.

Captain Nick Salameh, of Fairfax Station, with his son Shepherd, almost 4, in the Falls Church Memorial Day Parade. Shepherd could barely contain himself as he sat on the side of the road waiting for daddy to come down the parade route, sirens screaming … then … all of a sudden, the door swings open and the crowd heard, “Come on Shepherd!” The little guy went running to the engine. Salameh has been serving for 28 years as a captain in the Arlington County Fire Department.
