Jones Branch Connector Project


Project Description

The Jones Branch Connector is being planned to meet the goals of Fairfax County in its redevelopment of the Tysons area. These goals include the development of a grid of streets that are pedestrian friendly, support multi-modal forms of transportation such as bicycles and buses and contribute to a more urban, “downtown” feel than currently exists. The Jones Branch Connector will provide an alternative route between Tysons East (Route 123) and West (Jones Branch Drive), bypassing the I-495/Route 123 Interchange. The proposed connection is anticipated to improve the operations along the adjacent road systems. Currently the existing Jones Branch Connector carries traffic between Jones Branch Drive and the I-495 Express Lanes ramps. This project will extend and widen these existing lanes eastward along Scotts Crossing Road, ending at Route 123 adjacent to the McLean Metro Station. The project includes Federal, State, and local (Fairfax County) funding. The total cost estimate for engineering, right of way acquisition, and construction is approximately $56 million.

Project Limits
