Learn more and give feedback online at virginiadot.org/BraddockMultimodal
FAIRFAX – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting Tuesday, Nov. 29 on planned multimodal improvements and access management for just over three miles of Braddock Road (Route 620) between Humphries Drive in Burke and Ravensworth Road in Annandale, including the ramps from southbound and northbound I-495 (Capital Beltway) to eastbound Braddock Road. The project team will provide an overview of work to date and will share information about the preferred concept at each of the critical Braddock Road intersections of Rolling Road, Burke Lake Road and Danbury Forest Drive/Wakefield Chapel Road.
The project aims to improve multimodal safety, mobility and accessibility for all users with intersection and interchange enhancements, new and upgraded shared-use paths along both sides of Braddock Road, and a potential pedestrian overpass just west of Burke Lake Road.
Within the project limits, Braddock Road averages about 61,000 vehicles a day.
The project’s right of way and construction will be done in two phases: Braddock Road from Southampton Drive to Ravensworth Road, and Ravensworth Road from Braddock Road to Heritage Drive (Phase 1) and Braddock Road from Humphries Drive to Southampton Drive (Phase 2). Phase 1 is fully funded and Phase 2 is partially funded. The project is financed with federal, state (including Smart Scale) and local funding.
