About the Project

The Virginia Department of Transportation is widening Fall Hill Avenue from the two existing lanes to four lanes with a raised median from Carl D. Silver Parkway (Central Park) to a roundabout just west of the bridge over the Rappahannock Canal.

Mary Washington Boulevard will be extended to intersect with the roundabout, which will provide a new connection between Route 1 (Jefferson Davis Highway) and Fall Hill Avenue.

In addition, the existing bridge over Interstate 95 will be widened from two lanes with no shoulders or sidewalks to four lanes with pedestrian facilities on both sides. 

Fall Hill Avenue carries approximately 17,200 vehicles per day, and the number of vehicles is expected to double in the next 20 years.

Fall Hill Avenue will remain open to traffic during the project, with periodic lane closures during off-peak hours.
