The new pedestrian facility includes 400 linear feet of concrete sidewalk that ties into the existing pedestrian facilities near Douglass Drive and the Dead Run Trail. The five foot sidewalk is separated by a four foot wide grass buffer strip. Other infrastructure improvements are required to provide an accessible path, including curb and gutter, curb ramps, driveway entrances and pavement modifications. A closed drainage system was installed to meet drainage requirements and support the installation of the pedestrian facility. Modifications to signage and pavement markings were made to enhance vehicle and pedestrian safety.

The new pedestrian/bicycle facility features:

  • A 1,200 foot long asphalt trail through the wooded area north of Oak Bluff Court. Retaining walls and an open drainage system were required along this stretch to accommodate the trail. The trail connected to the western end of Premier Court. 
  • A 600 foot long concrete sidewalk along the south side of Premier Court. Other improvements in this area included curb and gutter, new pavement, parking modifications and on-road bike lanes.  
  • A crosswalk connecting the new sidewalk on the south side of Premier Court to an existing sidewalk on the north side of Premier Court, helping commuters safely access the Burke Centre VRE.

The Jones Branch Connector helps 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 provides an alternative route between Tysons East (Route 123) and West (Jones Branch Drive), bypassing the I-495/Route 123 Interchange.
