March 3 marks the beginning of a new opportunity for Mason as the new Songdo campus in South Korea will hold its first classes of the spring semester. Opening celebration events will take place on March 9 and 10. Mason alumni, business, education and media contacts will be invited to attend the opening ceremony events, Events and Outreach Director Jim Burke said.
This spring, commuter students may notice condensed traffic around Chain Bridge Road. The City of Fairfax will begin the demolition and replacement of an existing 90-year-old bridge over Accotink Creek in late March or early April.
"The existing bridge is about 90 years old and it's functionally and structurally obsolete, it's had its useful life but the concrete is starting to weaken and we need to replace it so it can carry the present day vehicle loads," said Director of Public Works, David Summers.
