As of 2005, central Springfield is dominated by the over half-billion dollar Springfield Interchange highway project. The interchange is popularly known as The Mixing Bowl since it involves three interstates, has two exits less than a half mile away, has two unconnected roads (Commerce Street and VA-644 (Old Keene Mill Road / Franconia Road)) going over or under the interstates less than a half mile away, and is further complicated by the presence of a separate, reversible HOV lane passing through the center of two of the interstates. Springfield's emblematic destination point is Springfield Mall, a large indoor shopping mall. It is typical of American shopping malls in its variety of stores, along with several "anchor" stores such as Macy's, two movie theaters, and a food court. The mall experienced two gang-related stabbings in 2005 and has seen other violent crimes over the years. Springfield remains a conservative stronghold in increasingly left-leaning Northern Virginia. This may be due in part to the prevalence of military families living near Fort Belvoir and The Pentagon and the highly commercial nature of the area. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
