Virtual Public Information Meeting Jan. 13 on Braddock Road Multimodal Improvements
Learn more and give feedback online at virginiadot.org/BraddockMultimodal

FAIRFAX – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting Thursday, Jan. 13 on plans to construct multimodal and access management improvements along three miles of Braddock Road (Route 620) between Humphries Drive in Burke and Ravensworth Road in Annandale, including the eastbound and westbound Braddock Road ramps to southbound I-495 (Capital Beltway Outer Loop) and a half-mile of Ravensworth Road between Braddock Road and Heritage Drive. This project aims to improve safety, mobility and accessibility for all users.

Prior to the meeting, residents and travelers are encouraged to learn more by viewing a presentation online (also available in Spanish and Vietnamese) detailing the project’s preliminary design at virginiadot.org/BraddockMultimodal. During the meeting, alternatives will be presented for three intersections along the Braddock Road corridor: Rolling Road, Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive and Burke Lake Road.

The project’s other planned improvements include new and upgraded shared-use paths along both sides of Braddock Road, and a pedestrian overpass just west of Burke Lake Road.

Within the project limits, Braddock Road averages about 71,000 vehicles a day and Ravensworth Road averages 14,000 based on 2019 data.

The project’s right of way and construction will be done in two phases: Southampton Drive to Ravensworth Road (Phase 1) and Humphries Drive to Southampton Drive (Phase 2). Phase 1 is fully funded and Phase 2 is partially funded. The project is financed with federal, state (including Smart Scale) and local funding.
