Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) held a virtual public information meeting for the Lincoln Street Feasibility Study project on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at 7:00 p.m. to update the community on the status of the study background and discuss the final staff recommendation about the concept plans.
The Lincoln Street corridor is located east of the I-495/Route 123 interchange and connects Old Meadow Road on the west and Magarity Road on the east, crossing Westgate Park, Scotts Run stream and the Scott's Run Trail. The Lincoln Street corridor provides an alternative access route from Old Meadow Road to I-66 and the McLean area, bypassing portions of Route 123. Access is also provided to Westgate Elementary School, and other residential and institutional properties situated in the Magarity Road/Pimmit Hills area.
The following improvements are planned for the Lincoln Street Project:
Walkways for both sides of Lincoln Street; and
Walkways along Magarity Road, which will connect to the Lincoln Street walkways.
Project News and Updates
The feasibility study for the Lincoln Street Project includes traffic analysis, preliminary roadway and bridge designs, preliminary stormwater management analysis and preliminary environmental evaluations. When completed (anticipated early summer 2022), the study will include development of preliminary design plans.
The Fairfax County Department of Transportation intends to conduct public outreach in early summer 2022, after which Final Design and Right of Way acquisition will be initiated. The current schedule projects construction to begin in early 2026.
The Tysons Area, particularly Tysons East, is projected to experience substantial growth in the next 40 years. Fairfax County’s traffic studies have focused on developing a refined street network to accommodate growth by distributing traffic across alternative routes and enhancing the urban quality of Tysons through enhancements to multimodal facilities. Lincoln Street is programmed to be a part of this improved roadway network serving Tysons.
Lincoln Street is classified as a Local Street in the Tysons Design Standards and can be found in the Tysons Grid of Streets (see page 58) planning document.
