East Elden Street WideningImprovements from Monroe Street to Fairfax County Parkway in the Town of Herndon
About the Project
This project will widen Elden Street from four to six lanes between Herndon Parkway and Fairfax County Parkway (about a third of a mile) in the Town of Herndon. The purpose of the project (about a mile in total length) is to reduce congestion, improve safety and enhance access to and from Fairfax County Parkway for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
Other improvements include:
- Adding bike lanes from Monroe Street to Herndon Parkway and adding from Herndon Parkway to Fairfax County Parkway cycle tracks, which combine the user experience of a separated path with the on-street infrastructure of a conventional bike lane.
- Undergrounding overhead utilities between Monroe Street and Fairfax County Parkway.
- Replacing the culverts over Sugarland Run with a new bridge to provide better stream flow and reduce potential flooding.
- Landscaping and planted medians where feasible.
Elden Street averages up to 30,000 vehicles a day within the project limits.
