Welcome. Always nice to have another local resident here. I grew up in Strathmeade Square and the Mantua area and I now live in Kingstowne.

Greetings from northern Georgia!!  :wave:

I've always wanted to visit northern Virginia, but I have not been able to do so yet as of now. I have, however, been to New England (Boston and Martha's Vineyard in the Summer of 2013), and I highly enjoyed the experience, and I would love to go back many times in the future!  :nod:

Being in NoVA, are you familiar with the Virginia Highways Project?  Both mapmikey and I are on this forum regularly.

Welcome!  Marylander (who still lives north of the creek) but I have had a lot of professional  dealings with VDOT (and VDHT before that) since the 1980's.

Greetings from Gainesville! With all the major transportation projects going on in our area, either currently under construction or on the near horizon, there'll definitely be a lot for all us NoVA residents to discuss.
