Join VDOT Jan. 26 to learn about project and provide input


ALEXANDRIA – The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Thursday, Jan. 26 on plans to replace the existing Backlick Road bridge over CSX Railroad with a new bridge that accommodates future railroad tracks. The bridge is located just east of the Backlick Road/Fairfax County Parkway intersection south of I-95.

The project is occurring as part of the Atlantic Gateway improvements, which aim to relieve congestion and improve capacity via road and rail improvements along the
I-95 corridor.

The public is invited to stop by between 6:30 and 8 p.m. at Island Creek Elementary School, 7855 Morning View Lane, Alexandria, VA 22315 to view displays and learn more about project. VDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

Comments may be provided at the meeting or sent to VDOT by Feb. 9, 2017. E-mail or mail comments to Mr. Shahrad Behboodi, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
