New Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge Open in Tysons
New shared-use path over the Beltway linking Tysons One Place and Provincial Drive
TYSONS – The new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over I-495 (Capital Beltway) between Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) and Route 123 (Chain Bridge Road/Dolley Madison Boulevard) opened this afternoon, greatly improving bicyclist and pedestrian accessibility, connectivity, and safety in the Tysons area, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.
The bridge carries a new ten-foot-wide shared-use path that runs nearly half a mile from Tysons One Place and Fashion Boulevard to Old Meadow Road and Provincial Drive, providing a new link between the Tysons Corner Center mall and Tysons residential areas east of the Beltway.
Construction on the first phase of the Tysons/Old Meadow Road Bike/Ped Improvements project began in August 2021 and is now substantially complete, with minor work occurring in the coming weeks until final completion with minimal impacts. The project’s second phase will extend the new shared-use path by half a mile along Old Meadow Road from Provincial Drive to Route 123; final design and construction will occur on the second phase as additional funding becomes available.
The $13.4 million Tysons/Old Meadow Road Bike/Ped Improvements project is financed with federal, state and Fairfax County funding.
