About the Project

This project widened Walney Road from two to four lanes near Willard Road to help relieve congestion by eliminating a bottleneck at this location and providing bicycle and pedestrian facilities. 

The project also replaced and widened the 85-foot-long Walney Road bridge over Flatlick Branch in Fairfax County. Walney Road kept two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, and was widened to include five-foot bike lanes on both the north and southbound lanes, as well as a sidewalk on the west side and a shared-use path on the east side.

The previous Walney Road bridge was built in 1980 and was functionally obsolete when the project began. The road carries more than 21,000 vehicles a day.

Estimated Costs

Preliminary Engineering: $200,000
Right of Way: $1.1 million
Construction: $13.6 million
Total: $14.8 million
