Recently Completed: Tysons/Old Meadow Road Bike/Ped Improvements - Phase 1 in Fairfax County

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

Please note: Phase 1 of this project was completed in November 2022. Final design and construction for Phase 2 will occur when additional funding becomes available.

This project, in cooperation with Fairfax County, built a pedestrian and bicycle bridge and shared-use path in the vicinity of Route 123 and I-495 (Capital Beltway). 

Based on results of the preliminary engineering phase of the study, and extensive community outreach and input, the "Option 2" alignment was selected for final design.

New Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge over I-495 and Shared-Use Path from Tysons One Place/Fashion Boulevard to Old Meadow Road/ Provincial Drive

Phase 1

During the first phase of construction, a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over I-495 was built along with a ten-foot-wide shared-use path from Tysons One Place and Fashion Boulevard to Old Meadow Road and Provincial Drive via the bridge. 

*Looks at Beltway* ��

Me: What is different about you? Are you parting your hair on the other side? ��

Beltway: Nope, my new pedestrian bridge in Tysons was placed this weekend. �� It'll be open later this year.
