This project will replace the weight-restricted (ten tons) one-lane Hunter Mill Road bridge over Colvin Run. The new bridge will have two lanes separated by a median/splitter island.
The project also includes:
- A new 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)
The existing bridge, built in 1974, averages 8,500 vehicles a day.
The project aims to reduce congestion and improve operations and safety.
