Wednesday, October 31:
Thanks to a great deal of preparation, execution and overtime work provided by Fairfax County's many service men and women, Northern Virginia is back up and running and open for business after Hurricane Sandy.
Luckily, there was no significant damage to our hotels, restaurants, attractions or airports. Many of the restaurants and attractions that closed early this week are now re-opened and welcoming visitors. We do encourage you to call the specific business or hotel you have plans to attend to confirm your reservations.
The Washington area airports, including Washington Dulles International and Reagan National Airport, weathered the storm without damage and are currently working to restore all canceled flights. Please check this link to re-confirm your flights with each specific airline. Some flights remain canceled as airline staff works to restore all flights, so it is important to check with your airline before reporting to the airport.
Public transportation, including Metrorail, Metrobus, Fairfax Connector, VRE and others are all working on a regular schedule.
We look forward to welcoming all visitors to Fairfax County, as always, and we hope you have an enjoyable trip to the Washington, DC metro area and beyond.
