Pedestrian Access Improvement
The Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services 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.

Work will take place at the intersection of Leesburg Pike with Colvin Run Road and Carpers Farm Way. 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.

Installation of the retaining wall may require an outage for a maximum of four (4) hours to de-energize and protect the overhead power lines that run near Carpers Farm Way. Fairfax County will work with Dominion Virginia Power (DVP) to schedule the deenergizing effort and notify the public in advance of the outage. DVP will supply customers an outage letter with a 10-day notice before the scheduled outage.
