Plan now to participate in a Virginia Department of Transportation virtual public information meeting on Thursday, March 18, on plans to construct bicycle and pedestrian improvements around the Vienna Metro station. The VDOT project team will make a short presentation beginning at 7:00 pm and will answer questions afterwards.

The new facilities will be added 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.
