  Springfield Interchange Project Photos - February 2004

The following 8 photos show various aerial views of the Springfield Interchange Improvement Project construction.

These photos were taken on February 19, 2004 by the Virginia Department of Transportation, and are posted here with their permission. Roads to the Future utilized PhotoDeluxe Business Edition to sharpen and brighten and to align all of the photos. Click on the photo to get a large version of the photo. In later versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer, you probably will need to use Full Screen mode (the F11 key can be utilized to swap back and forth between Full Screen and Regular) to see the full size of the large photo without browser-induced image shrinkage. The large photos are BIG, with the sizes ranging from 440 to 529 kilobytes, with most of them being under 485 kilobytes. With a broadband or network Internet connection each photo will download within seconds, but with a dial-up Internet connection it will be slow.
