This project completes a missing sidewalk link along the east side of Backlick Road. The project will construct approximately 750 linear feet of new 6 foot wide sidewalk between Degroff Court and Cindy Lane. Other infrastructure improvements are required to provide an accessible path, including new curb and gutter, curb ramps, driveway entrance reconstruction and drainage improvements. Construction of the proposed pedestrian facility will require right of way acquisition, utility relocations and tree removal.
This project was identified as part of the Fairfax County’s 2014 Transportation Bond.
