Richmond Highway Corridor Improvements Meeting Oct. 29
Give feedback on Environmental Assessment and project design

ALEXANDRIA – The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a fourth public information meeting and public hearing on the Environmental Assessment (EA), part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Monday, Oct. 29 on plans to improve almost three miles of Richmond Highway from Jeff Todd Way to Napper Road in Fairfax County. The proposed design will widen the road from four to six lanes, provide bike paths and sidewalks on both sides of the road, and reserve the median width necessary to accommodate Fairfax County's future Bus Rapid Transit plans for dedicated bus-only lanes.

Preliminary engineering has been fully funded by federal, state, and county sources, as well as the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority.

The public is invited to stop by between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School, 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road, Alexandria, VA 22039 to learn more about the project, review preferred design plans and provide input on the Environmental Assessment. VDOT staff will be available to answer questions. A presentation will begin at 7 p.m.

Comments may be provided at the meeting or sent to VDOT by Dec. 6, 2018. Email or mail comments to Mr. Dan Reinhard, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
