Project at a Glance
About the Project
This project will replace and widen the 70-foot-long Walney Road bridge over Flatlick Branch in Fairfax County. Walney Road will keep two 12-foot travel lanes in each direction, and will be 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 Walney Road bridge was built in 1980 and is now functionally obsolete. The road carries more than 21,000 vehicles a day.
