WALNEY ROAD WIDENING AND BRIDGE REPLACEMENT BEGINS EARLY DECEMBER
“Pardon Our Dust” meeting Dec. 1st at Sully District Governmental Center
Rendering of new Walney Road bridge over Flatlick Branch
CHANTILLY – Meet the Virginia Department of Transportation’s project team and learn more about construction and traffic impacts, including detours for the four and one-half month closure of Walney Road, at a “pardon our dust” meeting Monday, Dec. 1 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. at the Sully District Governmental Center, 4900 Stonecroft Boulevard in Chantilly.
Crews will start work on Tuesday, Dec. 2 on the $14.9 million project to improve safety and ease congestion by widening Walney Road from two to four lanes near Willard Road in Chantilly. The work will include adding five-foot bike lanes on both the north and southbound lanes, as well as a sidewalk on the west side and a shared-use path on the east side.
The project will also replace and widen the 85-foot-long Walney Road bridge over Flatlick Branch.
Beginning in mid-April, Walney Road will be closed from Westfields Boulevard to Mariah Court to relocate the existing sanitary sewer line and for bridge construction. The road will re-open to one lane of vehicular traffic in each direction on Sept. 1, 2015. Drivers will be detoured via Westfields Boulevard, Route 28, and Willard Road, and access to all adjacent properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. VDOT will announce this closure again in the spring.
