The purpose of this project is to widen Route 277 (Fairfax Pike) to provide additional traffic capacity, overall operational safety, and to improve the connectivity of the regional roadway system.  The proposed project is between the northbound ramps of Interstate 81 to Double Church Road.

The proposed Route 277 roadway section will provide four thru-lanes with a center median (combination of raised and striped), sidewalk is proposed on the north side and a shared use path is planned for the south side. 

Aylor Road will be relocated to the east to align with the current Stickley Road intersection; the traffic signal at the Town Run Lane will be removed.  VDOT Lane will be relocated to the west to align with the existing Food Lion shopping center entrance.

The current average daily traffic is 14,566 vehicles per day and this is anticipated to increase to 23,428 vehicles per day by the design year of 2038.

The estimate for the project is $36 million with $4.8 million for preliminary engineering $14.3 million for right-of-way and utilities, and $17.0 million for construction.
