Wider bridges over the Dulles Toll Road and new shared-use link

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) and Fairfax County celebrated several new multimodal improvements today at Route 7 and the Dulles Toll Road in Tysons Corner, including new bridges over the Dulles Toll Road and more than a mile of shared-use path through and around the interchange.

The project: 

  • Rehabilitated the two Route 7 bridges over the Dulles Toll Road, built in 1960, and widened the road from four to six lanes between Tyco Road and Jarrett Valley Drive
  • Created an important new bicycle and pedestrian link across the Toll Road and into Tysons to and from the west, via almost 6,000 feet of lighted shared-use path that will tie into future western trails; this trail provides new multi-modal access to the Silver Line’s Spring Hill Metro Station
  • Built pedestrian tunnels under and walkways over ramps for the Dulles Toll Road, eliminating the need for pedestrians and cyclists to cross in front of vehicles.

The $47.5 million project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget via federal, state and NVTA funds. The lead construction contractor was Wagman Heavy Civil. View more details on the project. Click here to continue reading…
