Cost and schedule ►

Public outreach ►

This project will 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 long-term 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
  • 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

Construction for the long-term improvements is expected to begin in summer 2024.

VDOT and Fairfax County plan to make the following short-term 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 flex posts or concrete barriers
  • Making interim bicycle and pedestrian enhancements along Sutton Road between Blake Lane and Country Creek Road

Construction for the short-term improvements is expected to begin in fall 2022.
