This project will construct bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the area of the Vienna Metro station along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard between Sutton Road and the ramp to westbound I-66, and along Sutton Road between Blake Lane and Country Creek Road.
VDOT and Fairfax County plan to make the following interim improvements:
- Creating a separated two-way cycle track on eastbound Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard between Sutton Road and the Metro North Parking Lot entrance by restriping and installing posts or barriers for separation
- Adding a buffered bike lane on Sutton Road between Sutton Green Court and Country Creek Road
- Upgrading pedestrian signals
- Installing related signs and pavement markings
Construction for the interim improvements is expected to begin in fall 2022.
Proposed final improvements include:
- Constructing shared-use paths along Blake Lane and Sutton Road from the I-66 bridge to Country Creek Road
- Adding a separated two-way cycle track with adjacent sidewalk along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard
- Implementing a road diet along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard from Sutton Road to the Metro North Parking Lot entrance
- Consolidating and relocating bus stops for improved transit access
- Realigning the I-66 westbound ramp to Country Creek Road
- Modifying the traffic signals at the intersections of Sutton Road and Blake Lane, Country Creek Road and the ramp from westbound I-66, and Country Creek Road and Vaden Drive.
- Installing new pavement markings and signs
Construction for the final improvements is expected to begin in summer 2024.
