Vienna: Around noon Wed 9/14, temporary traffic signals and Driveway Assistance Devices (DADs) will be activated along Hunter Mill Rd in the area of Colvin Run to allow construction to continue on the new bridge. Sadly, these DADs won't have jokes. More: https://t.co/RnOKQkydae pic.twitter.com/aZACjX6nUw— VDOT Northern VA (@VaDOTNOVA) September 12, 2022
This project is replacing the old weight-restricted, one-lane Hunter Mill Road (Route 674) bridge over Colvin Run. The bridge was originally built in 1974. The new bridge will have two lanes separated by a median/splitter island.
The project also includes:
- An improved trail crossing south of the bridge
- Landscaping in the median/splitter island
- Abutments for a new trail bridge over Colvin Run (Fairfax County will construct the trail bridge in the future)
Hunter Mill Road averages 7,400 vehicles a day within the project limits.
Preliminary Engineering - $1 million
Construction - $4.2 million
Total: $5.2 million
This project is financed with federal, state (including State of Good Repair funds used for bridges) and Fairfax County funding.
The project will reduce congestion and improve operations and safety.
