About the Project

This project, in cooperation with Fairfax County, will build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge and shared-use path in the vicinity of Route 123 and I-495, to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety and connectivity in the Tysons area.

Improvements include a new 10-foot shared-use path from near Tysons One Place and Fashion Boulevard to Route 123 and Old Meadow Road via a new pedestrian and bicycle bridge over I-495; the path will mostly follow Old Meadow Road.

Based on the results of the preliminary engineering phase of the study, which included extensive public outreach, the "Option 2" alignment was selected for final design.
