Springvale Road Bridge Replacement Public Info Meeting Oct. 21
Participate in virtual meeting and give feedback online

GREAT FALLS – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting Wednesday, Oct. 21 on plans to replace the weight-restricted (15 tons) one-lane Springvale Road (Route 674) bridge over Piney Run with a two-lane bridge in the Great Falls area of Fairfax County. The bridge was built in 1965 and rehabilitated in 2000.

Two options are being considered for the project:

  • Widening the bridge to two lanes with two four-foot-wide shoulders
  • Widening the bridge to two lanes separated by raised/splitter island medians with two two-foot-wide shoulders

The opening beneath the bridge will also be increased to better withstand flooding.

The bridge averages 4,700 vehicles a day. The project is financed with state funding.
