Virtual Design Public Hearing Nov. 17 on Vienna Metro Station Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements
Participate and give feedback online; learn more at virginiadot.org/ViennaMetroBikePed

VIENNA – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual design public hearing Wednesday, Nov. 17 on plans to construct bicycle and pedestrian improvements near the Vienna Metro station along Country Creek Road/ Virginia Center Boulevard between Sutton Road and the ramp to westbound I-66, and along Sutton Road between Blake Lane and Country Creek Road.

VDOT and Fairfax County plan to make the following interim improvements:

  • Creating a separated two-way cycle track on eastbound Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard between Sutton Road and the Metro North Parking Lot entrance by restriping and installing posts or barriers for separation
  • Adding a buffered bike lane on Sutton Road between Sutton Green Court and Country Creek Road
  • Upgrading pedestrian signals
  • Installing related signs and pavement markings

Proposed final improvements include:

  • Constructing shared-use paths along Blake Lane and Sutton Road from the I-66 bridge to Country Creek Road
  • Adding a separated two-way cycle track with adjacent sidewalk along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard 
  • Implementing a road diet along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard from Sutton Road to the Metro North Parking Lot entrance
  • Consolidating and relocating bus stops for improved transit access
  • Realigning the I-66 westbound ramp to Country Creek Road
  • Modifying the traffic signals at the intersections of Sutton Road and Blake Lane, Country Creek Road and the ramp from westbound I-66, and Country Creek Road and Vaden Drive.
  • Installing new pavement markings and signs

The project is financed with federal, state and Fairfax County funding.
