Richmond Highway Corridor Improvements Meeting April 18
Join VDOT to learn about project and provide input


ALEXANDRIA – The Virginia Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting Tuesday, April 18 on preliminary plans to widen Richmond Highway from four to six lanes between Jeff Todd Way and Napper Road. This project aims to increase capacity, decrease congestion, and improve safety.

The project includes several improvements for bicycle and pedestrian users on both sides of the road, as well as preserving the median width necessary to accommodate Fairfax County’s future planned Bus Rapid Transit. Preliminary engineering has been fully funded by federal, state, and county sources, as well as the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority. 

The public is invited to stop by between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School, 8515 Old Mount Vernon Road, Alexandria, VA 22039 to learn more about the project, review preliminary design plans and provide input. VDOT staff will be available to answer questions.

A presentation will begin at 7 p.m.

Comments may be provided at the meeting or sent to VDOT by May 18, 2017. Email or mail comments to Mr. Mark Gibney, P.E., Virginia Department of Transportation, 4975 Alliance Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030.
