VIENNA
 – The Virginia Department of Transportation will hold a virtual public information meeting Wednesday, Feb. 24 (if the meeting is cancelled due to inclement weather, it will be held Monday, March 8) on plans to construct bicycle and pedestrian improvements in the area of 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.

The preliminary design improvements include:

  • Constructing shared-use paths along Blake Lane and Sutton Road from the I-66 bridge to Country Creek Road
  • Adding a two-way cycle track with adjacent sidewalk along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard from Sutton Road to the Metro North Parking Lot entrance
  • Implementing a road diet along Country Creek Road/Virginia Center Boulevard from Sutton Road to the Metro North Parking Lot entrance
  • Realigning the I-66 westbound ramp to Country Creek Road to improve safety and operations
  • 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 to improve safety and operations
  • Installing new pavement markings and signs

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