Jan. 13 Virtual Public Information Meeting Info

Please note: A virtual public information meeting was held Thursday, Jan. 13. Couldn't make it? No problem, you're encouraged to learn more by watching a presentation detailing the project's preliminary design (view the presentation script in Spanish or Vietnamese), then watching the below meeting video detailing the alternative concepts for three intersections along the Braddock Road corridor: Rolling Road, Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive and Burke Lake Road (view the meeting presentation in Spanish or Vietnamese):Residents and travelers can provide comments on the alternative concepts via an online survey through Tuesday, March 1, view the survey in EnglishSpanish or Vietnamese.

This project will construct multimodal and access management improvements along three miles of Braddock Road (Route 620) between Humphries Drive in Burke and Ravensworth Road in Annandale, including the eastbound and westbound Braddock Road ramps to southbound I-495 (Capital Beltway Outer Loop) and a half-mile of Ravensworth Road between Braddock Road and Heritage Drive. 

The improvements include:

  • Intersection enhancements, including at Rolling Road, Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive and Burke Lake Road
  • New and upgraded shared-use paths along both sides of Braddock Road
  • A pedestrian overpass just west of Burke Lake Road

The project's right of way and construction will be done in two phases: Southampton Drive to Ravensworth Road (Phase 1) and Humphries Drive to Southampton Drive (Phase 2).

Within the project limits, Braddock Road averages about 71,000 vehicles a day and Ravensworth Road averages 14,000 based on 2019 data.

Phase 1 is fully funded and Phase 2 is partially funded. The project is financed with federal, state (including Smart Scale) and local funding. Estimated project costs continue to be developed as the proposed improvements and preliminary design are refined. 

Benefits 

The project aims to improve multimodal safety, mobility and accessibility for all users.
