Online Public Hearing for Hunter Mill Road over Colvin Run Bridge
Participate in Virtual Design Public Hearing Sept. 16

VIENNA – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual design public hearing Wednesday, Sept. 16 on plans to replace the weight-restricted (ten tons) one-lane Hunter Mill Road (Route 674) bridge over Colvin Run to reduce congestion, improve operations, and enhance safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. The bridge was built in 1974 and carries 8,500 vehicles a day.

The new bridge will have two lanes separated by a median/”splitter island” to help traffic flow smoothly, as well as:

  • An improved trail crossing south of the bridge
  • Landscaping in the median/splitter island
  • Abutments for a new trail bridge over Colvin Run (Fairfax County will construct the trail bridge in the future)
