In Design: Rolling Road Widening

Cost and schedule ►

Note: The Noise Study is now available. Final Report, Appendices A - C, Appendix Dand Appendix E

This project will widen Rolling Road (Route 638) from two to four lanes between Viola Street and Old Keene Mill Road and includes a shared-use path.

The project is being planned in a phased approach:

Phase 1 - Old Keene Mill Road intersection improvements
Includes interim improvements by adding a second left turn lane from Rolling Road to westbound Old Keene Mill Road, adding a dedicated right turn lane to eastbound Old Keene Mill Road, upgrading the signal and improving the intersection alignment.  

Phase 2 -  Widening and other improvements 
Includes widening Rolling Road from two to four lanes between Viola Street and Old Keene Mill Road, signal upgrades, pedestrian and bike facilities and improvements to access management. 

The project team has worked with Fairfax County to consider alternative design options, including the possibility of undergrounding utilities. This option was evaluated based on feasibility, potential property impacts, cost and schedule. At this time this is no longer being pursued due to cost.

The project is being financed with federal, state and local funding including Northern Virginia Transportation Authority funds.


This project aims to reduce congestion and improve safety for all users.
