A pair of streets linking Vienna and Dunn Loring could be altered to make room for bicycle lanes as part of an annual paving and restriping program.
The Fairfax County and Virginia transportation departments have proposed narrowing the travel and parking lanes on Cottage Street and Wolf Trap Road so bicycle lanes can be added “where possible.”
The focus of the Cottage Street project would be 1.1-mile stretch between Gallows Road and Cedar Lane. On Wolf Trap, the bicycle lanes could be added from Gallows to where the road dead-ends and turns into a bicycle path through Heritage Resource Park.
“Existing legal on-street parking will be maintained,” the Fairfax County Department of Transportation says of both proposed projects.
FCDOT and the Virginia Department of Transportation are also planning to upgrade crosswalks at five intersections in Providence District, four in the Dunn Loring area and one in Oakton:
- Madrillon Road at Boss Street
- Madrillon Road at Merry Oaks Lane
- Stonewall Drive at Shenandoah Street
- Wolftrap Road at Wolftrap Court
- Hibbard Street at Chain Bridge Road
The county and state collaborate on repaving and restriping efforts annually as part of VDOT’s regular street maintenance duties. This year’s work will begin sometime in April and continue until November.
Here’s more from FCDOT on what to expect:
Residents can expect work vehicles in their neighborhood during the project. Motorists are asked to be alert to temporary traffic patterns. Cars, basketball hoops or garbage cans may need to be temporarily relocated while work is under way. Work hours are usually limited to outside of rush hours. Crews typically work on neighborhood streets weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On other roads such as interstates and some primaries, work may occur overnight.
A virtual public meeting on the proposed Providence District projects will be held at 7 p.m. next Monday (April 18).
VDOT has a statewide paving map with information on specific roads that will be updated weekly throughout the season.
