Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

Please note: A video simulation is now available for the proposed Wakefield Chapel Road/Danbury Forest Drive Restricted Crossing U-turn (RCUT) intersection improvement, watch below:

The Public Outreach Summary for January-March 2022 is now available.

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.
