Coming Soon: Route 626 (Leeland Road) Pedestrian and Bicycle Upgrades

Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

The proposed project will build upon an existing shared use path along Route 626 (Leeland Road) in Stafford County by extending it to the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) station at Leeland Road, which is 0.12 miles east of Route 624 (Primmer House Road). 

Currently, the asphalt multi-use path is 4 to 5 feet wide, and begins on the westbound side of Leeland Road near Walnut Drive to Primmer House Road. 

The new bicycle and pedestrian path will be 10 feet wide and extended to the VRE station.

The total length of the new path is 0.727 miles.

The project will also install crosswalk equipment and markings at the Leeland Road and Walnut Drive intersection. 

The Leeland Road bicycle and pedestrian upgrade project will be funded using federal Bike and Pedestrian Safety Program funds.
