Please see the SCHEDULE HERE and MAP HERE for a list of road closures.

On the day that work begins on your street, ALL CARS must be removed by 7 A.M. that morning and may not return for 48 hours. If your car has not been removed, it will be towed by Dominion Towing (703-730-1177). Your car may return at 7 a.m. the day after asphalt has been paved and striped.
 
RAIN DATES: Should rain interrupt the schedule, new dates will be posted on our website at islandcreek.org and an email notice will be sent to residents who signed up for our e-list. To add your name to this list, send an email to communitymanager@islandcreek.org 

ALTERNATIVE PARKING: Alternative parking is available on John Thomas Drive, Thomas Grant Drive and at the Community Club House parking lot on a first come, first serve basis. Parking is also available on Morning View Lane PAST the Island Creek Elementary School going towards Landsdowne. If you park anywhere else on Morning View (look at no parking signs), you may be ticketed by the police department.

OTHER INFORMATION: 
  • DO NOT walk, skate board, roller blade, etc. across freshly paved/striped asphalt on the roadway. All pets should be kept off roadway for 24 hours to prevent tracking.
  • A 5 MPH speed limit on newly seal coated asphalt for two (2) weeks is recommended. Also, while turning, please turn your wheels while the car is in motion (not while your car is sitting completely still) to prevent divots. 
  • Please do not become alarmed if you see crews working on your street before your scheduled day, they are just doing preliminary work and you do not need to move your car for this.

    • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing (or an elbow or shoulder if no tissue is available) 
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects or high traffic areas.
    • Monitor the CDC for any new or additional information.
