Learn about Upgrades to North Glebe Road over Pimmit Run Bridge in Arlington
Presentation now available; Give feedback on project plans through Aug. 7

ARLINGTON – The Virginia Department of Transportation is offering a virtual update and comment opportunity on plans to rehabilitate the North Glebe Road (Route 120) bridge over Pimmit Run to improve safety for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians, and to extend the overall life of the bridge. The bridge was built in 1973 and carries 13,000 vehicles a day.

In lieu of an in-person meeting, VDOT invites residents and travelers to learn more and share feedback from home. A presentation outlines planned improvements, which include:

  • Replacing bridge beams, deck and barriers
  • Repairing, waterproofing and providing corrosion protection to abutments and piers
  • Replacing barriers and railings along bicycle and pedestrian connection to trails
  • Upgrading guardrails and drainage         

The project is financed with state and federal State of Good Repair funds used for maintenance of structures and bridges.

The presentation, past meeting materials and more project details are available at virginiadot.org/glebeoverpimmit. Send comments through Aug. 7 to meetingcomments@vdot.virginia.gov or to Mr. Shahrad Behboodi, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
