Walker Road over Piney Run
|Bridge replacement in Fairfax County|
Project at a Glance
About the Project
The purpose of this project is to replace the bridge on Route 681 (Walker Road) over Piney Run in Fairfax County. The bridge is located about three quarters of a mile north of Leesburg Pike (Route 7).
The existing bridge was constructed in 1932 and has been identified as a project for replacement. The existing bridge is 19 feet in length and has a total width of approximately 22 feet, and can accommodate alternating one-way traffic. The bridge was constructed with rolled steel beams and a timber deck.
The new bridge will consist of a 50-foot-long single-span structure with a total width of 40 feet and will accommodate constant 2-way traffic without the use of existing yield signs. The new bridge will include an attached six-foot sidewalk on the west side of the road to accommodate future trails planned by Fairfax County.
