Virtual Community Meetings on the Richmond Highway Transportation Funding Plan Set for May 24 and 25

For Immediate Release
May 17, 2023

Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will hold two virtual meetings to present information about the Richmond Highway Transportation Funding Plan. Learn about the plan and the transportation infrastructure projects included within the plan. 

Fairfax County Board of Supervisors approved the Embark Richmond Highway Comprehensive Plan. There also were 11 follow-on motions, one of which directed Fairfax County staff to develop a funding plan for the recommended transportation infrastructure improvements. Since then, the Fairfax County Department of Transportation has developed a list of dozens of recommended projects and conceptual designs in the Richmond Highway corridor. These recommendations come from the Comprehensive Plan Area Plans, Bicycle Master Plan and Countywide Trails Plan.

Infrastructure Projects Included in the Funding Plan

Community Business Center (CBC) sidewalk projects would add missing sidewalk connections for residents to walk to planned Bus Rapid Transit stations and existing shopping centers:

Grid of Streets projects would build enhanced streetscapes within the designated CBC’s as envisioned in the Mount Vernon Area Plan. These grids are anticipated to be built mostly through private development, but 25% of the total grid costs are included in the funding plan in case small parts need to be built by Fairfax County as capital projects.

There are also standalone projects in the corridor under consideration:

Four projects have two design concept alternatives, which would have greater and fewer right-of-way requirements. Option B alternatives for Quander Road, Southgate Drive, and Memorial Street could be completed within the existing roadway and do not have associated concept plans. Option B for Arlington Drive would require some additional right-of-way, but less than Option A. The final decision about which concept to build will be made during the design phase, with community input.
