Old Telegraph Road Slope Repair
|Along Pike Branch in Fairfax County|
Project at a Glance
About the Project
This project is stabilizing the road embankment along Old Telegraph Road near Pike Branch in Rose Hill. The emergency project includes drilling shafts, stabilizing the road embankment and moving Pike Branch away from the road embankment. Work is expected to be complete in November 2018.
During construction, the work zone will be closed to through traffic during work hours, and open to southbound traffic only during off hours. When crews are at work, local residents and emergency vehicles can stop and be flagged through the work zone.
A long-term project is currently in design to restore about 5,500 linear feet of Pike Branch and tributaries between Telegraph Road and Old Telegraph Road. Some preliminary work on Pike Branch has begun in support of the emergency road repairs, including the removal of trees. Following the completion of the stream restoration project, the area will be replanted with a mix of native vegetation, including trees.
On Thursday, Oct. 11, Fairfax County will host a "Pardon Our Dust" meeting to present information on the County's adjacent project to restore Pike Branch at Ridgeview Park. VDOT will participate in the County’s meeting to share information on VDOT’s Pike Branch restoration project.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Mark Twain Middle School cafeteria, 4700 Franconia Road in Alexandria.
