| Free

Note: A “pardon our dust” meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 8 at Island Creek Elementary School, 7855 Morning View Lane, Alexandria, VA 22315.

About the Project

This project, which is part of the Atlantic Gateway improvements, is replacing the existing bridge that carries Backlick Road (Route 617) over the CSX Railroad with a slightly higher bridge that accommodates the addition of new rail tracks.

Other improvements include:
Wider shared-use path on bridge
New pavement on both ends of the bridge
New curb and gutter on the southern approach to the bridge
Wider entry at the north end of the bridge to provide more room for vehicles, particularly trucks

The bridge is located approximately 300 feet east of the Backlick Road/Fairfax County Parkway (Route 286) intersection south of I-95.
