With only 2.2 square miles it is sometimes difficult to know where the City's road maintenance jurisdiction ends and Fairfax or Arlington's begins. In some instances, the City owns one side of a road and another jurisdiction owns the other side. Also, within the City are 13 privately-maintained roads, which are not maintained by the City.
A tool citizens can use to determine the City's maintenance jurisdiction is the Street Ownership mapping application
. Although the City of Falls Church maintains all public roads within its jurisdiction, the City is required to maintain roads to strict VDOT (Virginia Department of Transportation) standards and is partially reimbursed for this compliance.
If you have questions about a City-owned road you can submit a query to firstname.lastname@example.org
or through the City's Request Tracker
