Trail Crosswalk Improvements At Route 7 and Colvin Run

Fairfax County will start construction on Project No. ST-000003-018, Leesburg Pike/Colvin Run Road Pedestrian Access Improvement Project, on April 18, 2016 and is expected to complete construction by early 2017.

This project will add a signalized pedestrian crosswalk at the intersection of Leesburg Pike and Colvin Run Road, providing a safe crossing for pedestrians and improving access to the Cross County Trail system. Construction will involve intersection modification, lane widening, and the installation of 203 linear feet of new sidewalk, bus pads, and pedestrian accessibility improvements. Signal modification improvements will include new mast poles, pedestrian signals, signage, pavement marking, and other associated improvements.

These improvements involve construction of retaining walls, storm drainage structures, fencing, and other related improvements. There may be lane closures during off-peak hours, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
