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.

Traffic Impacts

During construction, the bridge will be closed to traffic with drivers detoured via Westfields Boulevard, Route 28 and Willard Road. View the proposed detour plan.

Estimated Costs

Preliminary Engineering: $834,000
